What is the commitment level?
What is the commitment level?

It's up to you! Many members choose to support the League only with their annual dues. Your membership alone gives us the political influence needed to build a voice for citizens and a force for change. We cover a broad spectrum of issues and concerns; you may choose to become involved in one or more of them by actively participating in a group study, or listening to a panel of experts at a meeting or just reading about them in one of our publications.

What is Difference of the Membership Types: Individual, Sustaining, and Centennial?

Each of these membership types (Individual, Sustaining, and Centennial) provide the same membership, however, the membership types that cost more are able to help support the league in ways we could not otherwise. The Sustaining and Centennial memberships help sustain our open door members and helps support the league in its mission above the Individual membership level.

Does my Membership Dues Stay in my Local Community?
Does my Membership Dues Stay in my Local Community?

Yes! But also no. With each membership level, that full amount does NOT all stay with the Milwaukee County League (including Waukesha branch). Our league actually only keeps 11%-35% of the amount, the remaining goes towards the leagues costs for membership to include all local, state, regional and national dues.


See the chart below to get a better understanding of where membership dues go. We are grateful for our members to help lead the League!
