2024 Program Planning

Being a member of the League offers you the opportunity to help shape the Leagues priorities.  Through the Program Planning process, members talk about what they want to see in the year ahead: 

  • What we should be advocating about 
  • What we should be educating ourselves and the community about
  • Where we should be focusing our energies to learn more.

The League is grassroots-powered by our members – you.
