Do You Belong to an MWL Chapter?

MWL has four affiliated regional chapters in addition to the main office in Minneapolis. If you work or reside in a county that is included in one of the four chapters below, you are considered a member of that chapter. 50% of an individual's membership dues are passed directly to the designated chapter to support various activities. Each chapter elects its own leadership and coordinates various events and initiatives throughout the year.  

 

Visit the MWL Calendar of Events to view upcoming meetings and events hosted by area Chapters. For further information, feel free to contact any of the Chapter Officers listed below.

 

How To Join a Chapter:
1) For new & renewing members who want to join a chapter, make sure to fill in both work and home county information when you submit your online application or membership renewal form. If the county you specify falls under one of the four chapters, you automatically become a chapter member.
