WHAT IS THE OBSERVER CORPS?
The Observer Corps is a group of League of Women of Marblehead (LWVM) members who attend meetings of various town boards and committees in an effort to promote transparency in local government. This is a way the LWVM can stay informed on local government activities and decisions that relate to League positions. Observer reports are available to the public on the LWVM website and Facebook page, and are sent to The Marblehead Reporter on a regular basis to help citizens stay informed on town government.
CONSIDER JOINING THE OBSERVER CORPS
As an observer, you will attend meetings either in person or on-line. You are there as an observer, not a participant. Observers are not spokespersons for the LWVM but attend to watch and report back to the League. Training is provided to Observer Corps volunteers. You can also work as a team to share the responsibilities of attendance and reporting.
Currently we are in need of Observers for the School Committee, Marblehead Municipal Light Board, Water & Sewer Commission, Conservation Commission and Abbot Libray. Email us at lwvmarblehead [at] gmail.org to volunteer.
