We are in the process of applying for local League status and there are many details we need to consider. For example, what dues should we charge, should we have different categories of dues, are we successful involving new members, how do we raise money to support our objectives, what are our objectives?

We will also play a few games where we will test our knowledge of League Lingo and procedures. It should be fun and interactive.
