Wow! That seems a lot your provisional year, hopefully this will answer a few more questions you may have:
“I work full time and have a crazy life/kids/family/dog. What is the time commitment required to be a member?”
- Your first year in the League is well rounded as well as the most interesting. You will work on a variety of projects and get to know our League. Most consider the first year in our League as the most time intensive. There is a required number of volunteer hours and meetings. Please come to one of the New Member Open Houses in July/August to learn more.
“I am trying to plan my wedding/vacation/life. Do you have the dates of all the mandatory meetings”?
- Our calendar runs August 1 to May 31, and a Provisional Chair is put into place on June 1. As soon as she gets her team together, they will begin mapping out your provisional course. We will provide all the important dates to our new members as soon as we can.
We look forward to your membership! Email our membership committee with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
