Membership Criteria

While attendance at monthly meetings is strongly encouraged, it is not mandatory, and there are various opportunities for members to participate at the subcommittee level and/or various volunteer opportunities throughout the TMLS' annual event and programming calendar. The mandatory criteria for membership in good standing are a strong commitment to forwarding the goals and ideal of the organization, and payment of the nominal annual dues.

To Inspire You

We, the people. It is a very eloquent beginning. But when that document was completed on the seventeenth of September in 1787 I was not included in that We, the people. I felt somehow for many years that George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, just left me out by mistake. But through the process of amendment, interpretation and court decision I have finally been included in We, the people.
