When this year’s board met for the first time in July, it was a no-brainer that one of the areas we needed to focus on was increasing membership. Because we haven’t had a focused membership campaign in the last couple of years, our membership numbers have dropped.
So the membership committee, chaired by Anne Williams, has been reaching out to previous members and encouraging them to renew their memberships. If you know of someone – male or female — who might be interested in joining, please encourage them.
Membership is open to men and women 16 years or older. New or renewed memberships are good through June 30, 2020. Membership costs $75 for a single membership, $112.50 for two members in the same household, and $18 for a student.
An added benefit is that membership in the League of Women Voters Metropolitan Tulsa automatically means membership in both the state and nationals Leagues. And, if you weren’t aware, dues are tax deductible.
The Membership Committee also has plans to hold membership drives in selected locations. If you know of a location that would be appropriate for hosting an LWVMT membership drive, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 918- 747-7933.
Our members make a visible difference by serving as community leaders to create positive, lasting change. The League’s work is never done, but it is especially critical in these times when citizens need the kind of trusted, non-partisan information we provide. The League is only as strong as its members.
