Depending on your time and interest there are many ways to become involved with the League.
Every little bit of help is appreciated. We understand that volunteers may not have large amounts of time to invest in the tasks below. We urge you to reach out to the head of a committee you are interested in.
Just because you can not attend an event, or you work during business hours, you shouldn't assume we don't need you! Often there are small jobs we need help with that are not time intensive, and can be done from your own home. Every little bit helps. From answering emails to monitoring online, we can find a way for you to assist the League, we promise!
Take a look at the following committees and reach out and become a volunteer.
Follow bills of interest to the League.
Listen and take notes as bills move through the committee process. Then report via email to the League Legislative listserve. If deemed an issue the League should act on, help research the bill and the League position. Training provided.
