SETI League Regional Coordinators
Rules and Regulations
In order to improve service to our geographically dispersed membership, The SETI League, Inc. shall establish a network of volunteer Regional Coordinators, to serve without compensation at the pleasure of the Executive Director.
The SETI League will endeavor to appoint one Regional Coordinator from each country, province, state, or geographical region in which substantial SETI League activity exists, or in which the Trustees desire to promote SETI League activity.
Any SETI League member in good standing who suitably expresses sympathy with and allegiance to the views of the Vision Statement and Mission Statement of The SETI League, Inc. in accordance with these Rules and Regulations is eligible for appointment as a Regional Coordinator. Applications for such appointment shall be submitted to the Executive Director who, in consultation with the Trustees of The SETI League, Inc. shall determine that the volunteer is worthy and well qualified. A suitable certificate shall be issued to each Regional Coordinator in recognition of his or her service to The SETI League, Inc.
In evaluating Regional Coordinator applications, the Trustees will give preference to those volunteers who are accessible via email.
Duties and responsibilities of each Regional Coordinator shall include the following:
Respond to inquiries about The SETI League from local journalists and prospective members.
Provide a focus for local SETI League activity.
Endeavor to make new SETI League members in the region feel welcome.
Offer technical assistance to local SETI League members to the extent possible.
Make public presentations about SETI and The SETI League from time to time.

Assist with the development of a SETI League Regional Website, if possible.
Submit to the Executive Director an annual activity report, to be presented at The SETI League Annual Membership Meeting.
Such other duties as the Regional Coordinator may choose to perform, subject to consultation with the Executive Director.
To assist in coordinating local SETI League activities, each Regional Coordinator may, from time to time and subject to confirmation by the Executive Director, appoint and delegate duties to one or more Deputy Regional Coordinators. Any SETI League member in good standing who suitably expresses sympathy with and allegiance to the views of the Vision Statement and Mission Statement of The SETI League, Inc. in accordance with these Rules and Regulations is eligible for appointment as a Deputy Regional Coordinator. Such Deputy Regional Coordinators shall serve without compensation at the pleasure of the Executive Director.
In order to provide leadership experience to the greatest number of SETI League members, the Executive Director may, from time to time and at his sole discretion, remove from office and appoint a replacement for any serving Regional Coordinator. Such replacement shall in no way be deemed a negative reflection on the capabilities and contributions of any Regional Coordinator so replaced.
These Rules and Regulations shall have the force and effect of Bylaws of The SETI League, Inc. They may be amended as necessary from time to time by the Board of Trustees. Amendments or revisions shall become effective as of the date of their posting to the World Wide Web site of The SETI League, Inc.
