ABOUT GREATER BIRMINGHAM OBSERVER CORPS
To monitor governmental bodies for information of importance to the community.
Our History and Purpose
The purpose of the Greater Birmingham Observer Corps (GBOC) is
to follow and observe the actions of governmental and quasi-governmental
entities in the Greater Birmingham area and objectively report on those
activities to the community through print, broadcast, and social media. The
Observer Corps has been a project of the League of Women Voters of Greater
Birmingham for many years and is needed now more than ever to supplement media coverage at many public meetings. The League of Women Voters has extensive
experience in organizing and managing Observer Corps and has held a reputation
for fairness, nonpartisanship, and trust for 97-years.
