Below are the members and brief description of their duties and biography.


President

Juan Carlos Brito

Apart from all other considerations, sound leadership, couched in knowledge, experience and common sense, is the greatest requirement and most exemplary qualification of the man or woman selected as president of a Little League.

As the chief administrator, the president selects and appoints managers, coaches, umpires and committees. As such, no person becomes a manager, coach, umpire or committee member without the approval of the president. However, all appointments are subject to final approval by the local league’s board of directors.

Importantly, the president is the officer with whom Little League International maintains contact. The president also represents the league in the District organization.


Vice-President

A vice president may manage, coach or umpire, provided they do not serve on the protest committee.
