Sunday, April 6th, 2014 2:00pm 2015 BV Board Member Elections
We will be holding the 2015 Bonita Valley Girls ASA Board Member Elections at Closing Ceremonies. Board Member positions are for one year, from 1 September through 31 August. Board Members are dedicated parents and community volunteers - no one gets paid. We mainly do this to help ensure that our children, and yours, have a great experience playing and learning an organized sport in a safe and friendly environment within our community.
The Board Member positions and the tasks they perform are listed in the Bylaws and can be found in the BVGASA tab on the menu above. This year BVGASA had 602 players from 4 to 14, playing more than 400 regular season games and Playoff tournaments. We will field about 9 All Star teams for the summer and conduct all needed maintenance on 6 fields. It takes a lot of community involvement to make this all work. BVGASA Board Members meet every month and work with other volunteers during the season, including you, that get it done. If you can and want to do more to support this effort, consider becoming a Bonita Valley Girls ASA Board Member.
Contact the league Secretary Jenevieve with your name and the position you are interested in by the end of the month. She will get your name on the ballot.
