New members are welcome. You do not have to be a LWV member to join a group.
Become better informed by attending one of the Great Decisions study groups, coordinated locally by the League of Women Voters; It gives us the opportunity to read and hear what the experts have to say about topics we may be quite unfamiliar with. The books are hot off the press in Nov. so the material is quite up to date. Our groups will begin in mid January. New participants are always welcome.
