Unfortunately, Iron Chef (Sakai? Morimoto? Chen? Kobe?), there is no clear-cut answer.
I will say that a GOOD secretary is worth his or her weight in gold. When you find one who stays on top of the arrearages, finds bowlers when current bowlers quit, handles league meetings (or handles the issue before it comes to that), pay that person whatever it takes to keep them happy. In the San Fernando Valley, a one-time fee of $10 per bowler is very common for the combined position of secretary/treasurer.
Reba, some secretaries might have turned it into a profession, but in terms of hours, it's a very poor paying one.
In a league where I was secretary for $10 per bowler, with 48 bowlers, I received $480. In return, I spent 34 weeks times 3 hours a night at the center, for a total of 102 hours (I missed one week with the birth of my child, so make it 99 hours). Add in the time each and every week spent checking for awards, finding new bowlers, handling the sanction stuff, and taking care of the money for sweepers, and McDonalds pays better.
Sure there are people who take the job mistakenly thinking it's easy money, and who don't do the job correctly, but the league's choice is to VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE.
