Provisional membership consists of an introductory year of training. Currently, our provisional members participate in a mini placement toward the end of their initial year of membership on various committees. They can contribute to the league in a meaningful, helpful way. In the past, provisional members have planned various projects that have positively impacted the local community and support the mission of our organization.
In the past, provisional members have impacted the community through various projects:
