Who We Are
The Membership Committee works together to attract, maintain, engage and account for membership and volunteers in the League of Women Voters of Montgomery County Maryland.
What We Do
The Membership Committee is continuously working to increase membership through outreach and voter registration events that educate and engage the public about League voter services, issue advocacy and research activities. To help each individual find a meaningful role in League activities, we make an effort to introduce them to the committees or work groups that best suit their interests and skills. Welcome receptions for new and prospective members and volunteers, organized and staffed by our Committee several times a year, provide them an opportunity to meet each other and hear from long-time Leaguers about their own involvement. Our members work with the schools to foster student involvement through internship programs and service learning hours for high school and college students. We help spread the word that free memberships are available to students ages 16 to 30.
What We’re Keeping an Eye On
We are constantly looking for innovative ways to engage new members and volunteers. This year we created a new position, Outreach Event Coordinator, initiated an Event Leadership Training Workshop, and, are working to establish a mentoring program to develop and foster (new members and volunteers’ involvement and leadership in the League.
