Overview of our League's local positions on issue.
A members only meeting to learn more about our local positions as well as some actions we plan to take in the coming months.

Each year, at the Annual Meeting, we ask members to vote on whether to retain or drop existing county and local League positions. To prepare members for this task, it is helpful for members to have a basic understanding of the positions.

This basic meeting will be a start for educating members. In the future, as we focus on issues such as Housing, we can have a more in-depth review of housing positions at all levels of the League.

Please RSVP to as seating is limited
