Special Interests Groups

If you are passionate about a particular issue, becoming an Issues Specialist may be the way to go.  

Join A Special Interest group! 

Our Special Interest groups build upon positions taken at the national and state level and have an impact beyond our local communities.  Our League pursues an issue because we have members who share an interest and are willing to devote time.
