Join the League

Why and how can you join our local organization?

How do I join?

It's easy! Membership is open to all persons at least 16 years of age. You can join by paying annual dues ONLINE or by MAIL-IN.

Why should I join?

You will gain knowledge and experience through the study and discussion of timely and important topics, especially crucial issues in your community. As you meet other in League who share your interests, you will make professional contacts and develop friendships.

How much time does League take?

It's up to you! Some 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. Since 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 study group or by listening to a panel of experts at a meeting or by just reading our newsletter and other publications.

You automatically become a member of the LWV of Illinois and the LWV of the United States. You will receive their publications along with the bi-monthly newsletter, the Bulletin, from the LWV of Highland Park. You will know that you are adding your voice to a powerful force of members from all 50 states, Washington DC, the Virgin Islands, and Hong Kong.
