Mission Statement

Indiana Selective Service Local Board members are volunteers appointed by the President of the United States. They play an important community role closely connected with our nation's defense. If a military draft becomes necessary, approximately 2,000 Local Boards throughout America would decide which young men in each community receive deferments, postponements, or exemptions from military service based on federal guidelines.

Description

Indiana Selective Service Local Board members are volunteers appointed by the President of the United States. They play an important community role closely connected with our nation's defense. If a military draft becomes necessary, approximately 2,000 Local Boards throughout America would decide which young men in each community receive deferments, postponements, or exemptions from military service based on federal guidelines. This group has been formed to conduct outreach for prospective and existing Indiana Selective Service System Board Members.

During Peacetime
The Board Member program is one of the primary components of the Selective Service. Over 11,000 volunteers are currently trained in Selective Service regulations and procedures so that if a draft is reinstated, they will be able to fulfill their obligations fairly and equitably. The time commitment for an appointment is minimal. Board members undergo an initial 8-hour training session.


During a Draft
In the event of a draft Board Members meet occasionally on an as needed basis to make decisions.
