Why I Support the League

League members meet to discuss topics in a respectful setting. They learn effective techniques for public discussion, how to advocate on specific policies, and what the issues beneath the rhetoric are. This approach has earned the League a global reputation for integrity and thoroughness.

Your participation in League will expose you to a breadth of experiences and issues that will not only inform you but create greater possibilities for civic engagement than you imagine. You can spend as much or as little time working with us as you wish.

We offer our members webinars, conference calls, workshops, other events and mentorship opportunities throughout the year.
