WHY SHOULD I JOIN?

Through participation in League projects, you will:

  • contribute valuable service to the community
  • gain knowledge and experience through the study and discussion of timely and important topics
  • discover new interests, develop new skills and learn about crucial issues in your community
  • make professional contacts and develop lasting friendships as you meet others in League who share your interests

HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE?

It’s up to you! Many members choose to support the League only with their annual dues. Your membership alone gives us the political influence needed to build a voice for citizens and a force for change.

We cover a broad spectrum of issues and concerns; you may choose to become involved in one or more of them by actively participating in a group study, or listening to a panel of experts at a meeting or just reading about them in one of our publications.


WHAT DO I GET?

With your local League membership, you automatically become a member of LWV Kansas and LWV of the United States. You will receive the newsletter from the Wichita – Metro League of Women Voters called the VOTER.

You will also have the knowledge that you are adding your voice to a powerful force of members from all 50 states, Washington D.C., the Virgin Islands, and Hong Kong.

Register for membership or renew your membership today using our online form or our paper form.
