I work full time and have a busy life/kids/family/dog. What is the time commitment required to be a member?

During your first year in the League, you will work on a variety of projects and get to know our League. Most consider the first year in our League as the most time intensive. There is a required number of volunteer hours and meetings. Each year is a little different, but you should expect to commit about 70 hours your first year.

I am trying to plan my wedding/vacation/root canal/life. Do you have the dates of all the mandatory meetings?

Our calendar runs June 1 to May 31, and a Provisional Chair is put into place in January. As soon as she gets her team together, they will begin mapping out the year. We will provide all the important dates to our new members as soon as we can.

What is a Provisional?

Our League has three classifications of members. If you are in your first year of membership, you are considered a Provisional member. Once you complete your first year successfully, you will become an Active member. At the age of 40 (but no later than the age of 45), you can elect to be a Sustaining member.
