Interest Groups

Interest groups allow small groups of League members to pursue special interests.

Book Club: Book club meets monthly. Check our monthly calendar of events for meeting date and book title. Book club membership is currently full. If you have an interest in starting an additional book club, please send us an email:

Great Decisions : Great Decisions discussion meetings are based on the annual briefing book from the Foreign Policy Association, a non-profit organization designed to inform citizens about the complexities of current foreign policy issues. The public is invited to attend. Meeting dates and locations are posted on our monthly calendar of events.

Observer Corps: Observers are individuals who attend local government meetings, take notes, and report back to the League and the community. League members who participate in Observer Corps learn how government works and about issues that are or may become items for local study and action. Consistent League presence at local government meetings also adds to the League’s visibility and credibility.

If you are interested in joining the Observer Corps, please send us an email:

For more information about Observer Corps standards and best practices, see the national League of Women Voters resource guide:  Observing Your Government in Action.

House Bill 2560, passed by the Oregon Legislature in the 2021 session, took effect on Jan. 1, 2022. It requires governing bodies to make most public meetings remotely accessible when it’s “reasonably possible.” The new law requires governing bodies to provide a way for people to access most public meetings remotely.
