To register, send an e-mail to Mary Schaafsma at firstname.lastname@example.org. This training is open to other leagues in the area to ensure sufficient enrollment.

Any League wishing to host their own moderator training session can contact Irene Pritzker at email@example.com. A minimum of 10 participants is required. LWVIL asks a hosting local League to take responsibility for room and snack/lunch arrangements.
