League Health Report:League Boards - Take Notice! Are you making the grade?
In our continued efforts to help member leagues maintain a satisfactory status and remain proactive, we have implemented the "League Health Report." The report is unique, as it will provide a new and constructive way to inform and engage presidents, league registrars or any league board member to leap into action! The format will be straightforward and graphically charged, and therefore, much easier to read and navigate through. With a bundle of information right at your league's fingertips, the report will have information on areas such as their corporate status, player registration history, balances due, and much more. The report will be sent out this month, and then shortly followed by an email blast to all leagues and the Cal South board and district commissioners.

------------------------------------------------

League V.I.P. Updates:
Many leagues hold elections during the fall months, and invariably, will have a changing of the guard. As such, please help us keep our records updated so we can assure that all contact information is directed to the appropriate individuals and departments. The VIP list should include board positions including: name, address, phone and fax numbers, and email addresses. The updated lists should be emailed to chernandez@calsouth.com or faxed to 714 441-0715
