Members play a crucial role in the work that we do. The more voices we have with us, the greater attention we can garner from legislators. Members also provide us with the essential knowledge of what is needed most in their communities so that we can cater our services to meet those demands. Members not only help us further our efforts, but they also receive benefits such as newsletters, opportunities to attend trainings and networking events, voting rights, and the chance to get involved with our caucuses, allied groups and networks.
