About the Team: Want to join us? The Membership Team attracts, recruits, mentors, trains and retains members.  We maintain current membership rolls and keep the Member Handbook up to date.

The Team meets and speaks with new members as promptly as possible when they are joining or shortly thereafter. They check in with new members as needed.

Outreach: Do you like to meet new people? would you like help us reach potential new members?  We plan to:  Develop hand-outs; reach out to neighborhood groups;
reach out to other community organizations; work with other Leagues; and
communicate with the membership about recruitment.
