I was wondering if any of you had or are appointed to be your League's UIC by the President of your League. I am currently a standing Board Member and was voted by the Board Members to be the UIC (which I enjoy doing).
However, as I'm at the fields everyday monitoring the umpires or umpiring, I am also expected to do Board Member Duty Shifts, which impede me from umpiring or having a day off (I'm at the fields Mon-Wed and all day Sat).
So, I was wondering if I could be the UIC (appointed by the President) without actually being a Board Member and dealing with Board Shifts and the politics of the Board.
I just want to umpire and run the umpire program.

Your thoughts please...

Our UIC was in a similar position.
Stepped down from board to do the UIC gig properly.
Doing both is asking too much imho.

Talk to your President/Board and explain your position
Maybe you can work something out and still stay on the Board - who knows!

We have 15 Board Members, 3 of which are exempt from BOD On-Duty Shifts (President, UIC and Concession Coordinator).
The President has enough to do and he's at the fields more often than not already.
The UIC is expected to be at the fields most days/nights monitoring the umpires.
Likewise the Concession Coordinator is expected to be at the field most days/nights monitoring the concession stands.

Our complex has a baseball side and softball side so 10 of the other 12 each get a weeknight shift (one on each side) Monday through Friday.
The remaining 2 get the early Saturday shift (9:00 - 2:00).
The 2 that had Monday night get the late shift Saturday (2:00 - 7:00).
Each week everyone rotates.
Makes it fair for everyone and spreads the work around.

We actually considered increasing the BOD to 17 so 14 would get one BOD On-Duty Shift each week.

You're a volunteer.
Tell them what you want to do.
If they say yes, great.
If they say no, then you have a decision to make, stay or move on.

Thanks for the feedback.
I'll talk to the Board and go from there.

One would think they would be accommodating.

We all know some positions are much more work than others. (and some directors do much more work than others.)

Spoke to the Board and not much changed.
They still feel all Board Members need to do an equal amount of Duty.
But we're still looking at it...
Thanks all for your input.

I’m a former League President and now UIC.
In my league, the UIC is a Board Member but we don’t assign him any extra duties.
He’s focused on umpires and questions about rules and regulations.
That’s plenty enough.
He works with the special events coordinator to make sure the best umps are available for jamborees and such.
