Welcome to the League, New Member! Thank you for your interest in our work!
What LWV Does: Since 1920, the League of Women Voters has worked at national, state, and local levels to educate citizens about good government and to advocate for public policy positions we support. By participating in LWV, you become part of our nation’s most respected groups and you will be directly involved in making democracy work for all citizens.
We Want to Know What You Want from LWV: Since we know that each member joins with a particular background, skills and expectations, would you help us in learning what your particular expectations are? Just be sure to provide your email address, phone number, and interests on the membership form so our LWV Membership Chairperson can contact you soon. If you joined and paid without completing a form, we still want to know about you. Complete this form, note where and when you joined too, and mail or email it to contacts above.
LWV Participation: Some members choose to support League financially with dues payment and leave it at that, but most are looking to serve our Phoenix community, learn information and skills, or to improve their resumes. Many will use their existing interests and skills to get involved in the League’s advocacy and education groups. Review the Do Just One Thing list for ideas about how to be involved in LWV Metro Phoenix today.
Our Local Work: The priorities of the Metro Phoenix League will vary from year to year as the needs and interests of our community and the focus of our elected representatives change. We choose issues to study based on consensus and may take positions on these issues, although we never support or oppose political parties or candidates for office. Some of the topics of interest to our League recently include Maricopa County government structure and effectiveness; election reform and voter rights issues; public education funding; and women running for office.
Valley Teams Make Their Voices Heard: Members of LWV Metro Phoenix have many opportunities to make our community stronger. Members stay informed and are called to action via regularly scheduled team meetings currently held in Phoenix, Tempe, and Scottsdale. Members may view current calendar updates online at LWVMetroPhoenix.org or through our email C&C newsletter (Calendar and Comments,) as well as the LWVAZ state League online EBlasts and Action Alerts.
Meeting and event locations and dates are listed in these calendars. More information is available on the Members Only webpage: Please Email our webmaster, Devin Millington, for the Member’s Only page URL.
Please contact me to answer your questions and to find out what the LWVMP can do for you. I look forward to seeing you at LWV events.
