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.
