Board Elections

SDLL Board of Directors Election Process

South Durham Little League (SDLL) is an all-volunteer organization providing Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball® programs for more than 1,100+ players (ages 4-16) annually. Parents and others are needed to volunteer their time and talents to help ensure the success of the league by helping with the following activities: coaching coordination, player safety, registration, finances, field maintenance, fundraising, business/legal management, equipment management, uniform orders, team pictures, scheduling (teams, umpires, etc.), communications, social media, information technology and data management.

Serving as a member of the SDLL Board of Directors is a rewarding experience. A strong baseball or softball background is not required. Board Members must attend monthly meetings and are expected to assist with league-wide functions such as player evaluations, SlugFest, equipment distribution, field maintenance and serve on committees when called upon. Board Members are asked to serve a two (2) year term, and the number of coaches serving on the Board of Directors shall not exceed a minority of total Board Members.

New Board of Directors Appointment Process

In September 2022, the SDLL Board of Directors voted to eliminate the position of Member-at-large on the SDLL Board of Directors. Therefore, anyone interested in a position on the Board of Directors must indicate their preference and any applicable skills/talents that would pertain to the position(s) they are applying for on the Board.

Starting as an "Observer/Shadowing" Role in January:

  • Starting in January 2024, all newly elected Board Members shall serve in an "elect" or "observer/shadowing" role as part of the SDLL Board of Directors. Participation in league-wide events and some Board Meetings are still required however, voting and the "official start" of the term of office shall occur on July 1. Board Members shall serve in the "elect" or "observer/shadowing" role that works directly with the current Board Member in the position for the first six months. An exception to this requirement is if there is a vacancy with the SDLL Board of Director position or if the elected Board Director is currently a member of the SDLL Board.
  • Last 6 Months of Board Director Position: During the final 6 months of the term, each Board Member shall mentor/train the newly elected or incoming Board Member to provide greater continuity from year-to-year.
