Make phone calls, write letters

Attend a meeting once a month

Do you have a spare 24 hours a day, 365 days a year?


That's being active in League.

The more you do, the more fun you will have. The more every member does, the more the League can do.


Taken from the Pittsburgh LWV Voter

All levels of commitment in the League are acceptable. We need to eliminate the concept of "inactive members," once and for all, and instill "League without guilt."

What we strive for is to have League members committed to our organization forever. We cannot expect nor do we want you to give 100% of your time for life. The League is a place to learn and grow and give back again.

We want you to feel comfortable "just paying your dues" and to move in and out of League activities as your time commitments and priorities change. This is not possible un-less we WELCOME everyone.

Remember, your League of Women Voters' dues work for you even when you can't.
