As we start the membership roster updating process, we want to reward you for the great work that your League is doing to recruit and retain members and to keep the member database as up-to-date as possible. We have a simple 2-part opportunity to acknowledge and publicly celebrate those Leagues that are actively engaging prospective members. 

  1. Update ALL the expiration dates on member records in the national database by January 20th for your League and be eligible to win a $25 Staples gift card! 
  2. Show a net growth in membership numbers from Jan. 2013-Jan. 2014 by the deadline of January 31st to be eligible to win a free registration to the LWVUS Convention in 2014 in Dallas, TX.

Winners will be announced in February 2014.

Here are further details on each category:

1. Update ALL the expiration dates on member records in the national database by January 20th for your League and be eligible to win a $25 Staples gift card!  All Leagues who have updated the expiration dates by January 20 will be placed in a drawing.
