The President shall be responsible for the general management of the league and to verify that all orders and resolutions that the Board approved are carried into effect. The President will also be responsible (with assistance from the designated Player Agent) to examine the registration application and related documentation (including proof-of-age) to be able to certify that the player is eligible (for residency and age restrictions) to participate in the league.
Vice President: The Vice President shall assume those management responsibilities as may be designated by the President. The Vice President will also act in place of the President and perform those duties whenever the President is absent or otherwise unable to perform his or her duties. The board may determine that at-large offices of Vice President be added as needed to support the operation of the league and provide continuity.
Treasurer: The Treasurer shall have the responsibility for and supervision of the funds, accounts and investments of MCLL and shall keep accurate records of all receipts and disbursements. The Treasurer shall receive all monies and pay all bills of the organization in a timely manner. The Treasurer shall provide a financial report of the current financial condition of the organization at each Board meeting.
Secretary: The Secretary of the corporation shall keep accurate records and minutes of all meetings of the corporation as well as to make copies of the minutes available and distribute the previous meeting’s minutes in advance of each meeting. The Secretary will issue notices of meetings of the Board in a timely manner and perform such other duties as are incident to the office. These other duties include preserving the corporate records in a safe manner, having a copy of the By-Laws at all Board meetings as well as maintaining a complete directory of the members of the Board.

Receive and record all player registrations and maintain an accurate record of all players registered to participate in the league.
Handles any and all player transfers between teams.
Assist the Chairperson in verifying residence and age eligibility.
Conduct the tryouts, player draft and all other player transactions or selection meetings.

Safety Officer: The designated individual will be responsible for the following:
Create awareness (through education and information) of the opportunities to provide a safer environment for players participating in the league. This includes the annual training required for concussion awareness for coaches at the Spring coaches meeting as well as other practical insights such as appropriate behavior with minors.
Review safety related concerns identified (fields, equipment or other items) and make recommendations to the Board in order to address the situation.
Be the point contact for any reported incidents that resulted in a player injury. The Safety Officer would review the details and make any necessary recommendation to the Board. In addition, this individual will notify all appropriate persons (including district and national offices) when required and provide any needed follow-up to the incident.
Initiate and review all background checks (performed by the independent third party) of potential volunteers for appropriateness. All potential coaches and Board members are required to have a background check completed on them annually. Any concerns raised during this process will be reviewed with the President or Vice President to determine next steps including potentially contacting the individual to get additional information and possible discussion among other Board members (without disclosing the name of the potential volunteer.) Any incidents of violence or lack of stability will automatically preclude said individual from volunteering as a coach or Board member.
