RMMLA - Operational Roles
Hello RMMLA Members:
Our 2016/2017 Board of Directors was selected at our Annual General Meeting last Wednesday. At this point, we are looking for another group of volunteers to fill some of our Operational Roles. Positions include
- Facilities Allocator: allocating our field, box and arena time to teams; requires a fairly substantial time commitment
- Head Referee: mentoring and training our referees
- Head Coach (Male): helping to recruit, train and support male team coaches
- Head Coach (Female): helping to recruit, train and support female team coaches
- Asst' Female Director: assists the Female Director with female divisions
- Referee Allocator: working with Head Ref to schedule referees each week
- Equipment Manager: maintaining & ordering equipment
- Webmaster/ Social Media: maintaining our website, Facebook, and twitter
- Promotions: organizing photos, handling apparel
- Division Managers: we need several Division Managers to act as liasions between team managers and the Executive
- Event Managers: individuals to run one specific event such as one tournament, the BBQ, etc.
I'd encourage everyone to get involved with their child's lacrosse...these positions do require a time commitment, but nothing unmanageable. It's a great way to get involved, and we really have a lot of fun also! If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is Monday, September 26th.
NOTE: THESE POSITIONS DO NOT REQUIRE YOU TO ATTEND BOARD MEETINGS
