One of the most valuable services a local League can offer its members, and often the community, is to observe town boards and committees. The Falmouth League has had a very active Observer Corps for many years, and it is well respected in the Town.
- Participation in the Observer Corps is an excellent way for members to learn about local issues, and to share this information with League members through Bulletin articles and League meetings. Observers' reports are factual, present various sides of an issue, and are intended to help members be well-informed before making any decisions concerning possible League or individual action.
- Observers attend the first meeting of their chosen board or committee with a letter of introduction. This explains that the League is a non-partisan organization that encourages informed participation of citizens, and that a representative will attend their meetings only to observe and take notes.
- Representing the Falmouth League as a member of the Observer Corps involves a commitment to regular attendance at committee meetings and careful note-taking. Although most meetings are held at night, a few take place during the day, and we can usually find a convenient match. Some observers share coverage or occasionally watch meetings that are televised on FCTV.
