Help Needed: Board Members

New Board Members wanted

Polars Parents and players as you know lacrosse in the Fargo and West Fargo area would not happen without the dedicated work of the Board of Directors. The volunteers on the board work all year to make sure that we have the coaches and fields to practice and play lacrosse.  The schedule to meetings, games, and practices.  The make sure that there are lacrosse balls and cones ready for those games and practices.  These are just the minimum, we have fan and player apparel available. Lines on the fields and Lacrosse goals to use.  None of this is easy or quick.

We currently have a board of 7 people.  I would like to see that number be 11.  In accordance with our bylaws, each member of the board is elected to a 2-year term.  The positions that those members fill are assigned by the board once all positions are filled.  We have 4 elected members whose terms expire this year. This means that we need to elect 8 members to the board in 2020.

I can not stress enough the importance of filling all of these positions with passionate people.  we have grown in size every year and would love to continue that trend.  But to do that we need to grow our board as well.  The only requirement to be a member of the board of directors is that you have a desire to help grow the game of lacrosse in the Fargo, West Fargo, and surrounding areas.

Please, review all of the positions and their duties HERE.

If you are interested in running for an open board position please email your information to . Include your name, and a short bio and the reason that you are interested in joining the board of directors and any positions you are interested in filling.

Please submit your information before October 1st, 2020.
