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.

You automatically become a member of LWV Michigan and LWV of the United States. You will receive their publications along with the newsletter from the Alpena County League of Women Voters called LWV of Alpena County Newsletter which is usually published 10 times each year .
