The league's candidates' debates and/or forums, “meet and greets,” preparation of as many as three Voters Guides a year, hosting an annual wine tasting fundraiser and sending representatives to the league's statewide conference and lobby day in Austin are among the local league's highlight events.
The candidates' debates and the Voters Guide are the local League's key annual voter services and voter education projects.
Proceeds from the wine tasting fundraiser supports publication of the Voters Guide and the meet and greets and debates. The league also holds advisory council meetings.
Open to men and women, the league's guiding principles focus on belief in the representative form of government and individual liberties established in the Constitution of the United States.
The local league's annual meeting is the time for members to pay their annual dues for the 2012-2013 membership year.
Dues are $45 for individual members, $67.50 per household or $20 for student membership.
