Fall: Officers Meet with DA/Staff – Report Changes
It is vital that a well-run Little League’s officers meet with the district administrator and his/her staff to discuss plans for the coming year.
This is when a well-run Little League’s new directors learn what the district administrator’s role is, and the limits of his or her authority. (Operating Manual - Role of District Administrator.)
The boundaries of a well-run Little League should be discussed, to ensure no other leagues in the area overlap those of other chartered Little League programs. If the leagues cannot agree on the boundaries, the district administrator has the authority to adjust them as he or she sees fit, subject
to the review and approval of the Charter Committee in Williamsport (Regulation II f.). This also is a good time to set meeting dates and to coordinate start-finish times for the regular season.
If the league has not already done so, it should notify the District Administrator, the Regional Office, and Little League International, of changes in its list of officers.
