Membership Renewal and Request for Input

The League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County is officially 140 members strong, doubling membership in a single year. We hope you find that your membership has been valuable and provided meaningful purpose in your life. In an attempt to better understand and meet the needs and interests of all members, we will be conducting an Interest Survey in conjunction with our annual renewal process.

The League year is September 1st through August 31st of each calendar year. Dues are considered "on-time" when received no later than the renewal deadline of September 15th.

Expect to see your League Membership Renewal Letter in your mailbox soon. It will include a letter stating the amount of dues owed, which will be prorated if you initially joined the League in January 2016 or later. Also enclosed will be an Interest Survey card on which you will be asked to please check the box next to your interest(s) in League activities and committees. You will also be provided a space to share ways your League can improve to be more engaging and to better serve your individual interests and needs.

You may return the enclosed envelope with your dues remittance and completed Interest Survey card or renew your membership on-line via PayPal at

Please note that if you choose to renew on-line we would still very much appreciate learning your area(s) of interest in League activities and how to better serve our membership.
