The Observer Corp


The Observer Corps consists of members who volunteer to observe public meetings of elected bodies and write a short report for our chapter newsletter. Our purpose is twofold:
  1. To provide a visible and consistent presence in public meetings, reinforcing the message that the public watches and cares about the actions of elected bodies; and
  2. To educate our members about relevant actions taken by elected bodies.
Don't forget your pin!
