Observer Corps: The Eyes and the Ears of the League
Observers are individuals who attend local government meetings, take notes, and report back to the League and the community. League members who participate in Observer Corps learn how government works and about issues that are or may become items for local study and action. Consistent League presence at local government meetings also adds to the League’s visibility and credibility.
For more information about Observer Corps, see the national League resource guide, Observing Your Government in Action.
