Membership in Assistance League of Corvallis
Assistance League of Corvallis has over 200 members and is a vibrant presence in the community. Our members come from all walks of life, but all share a common purpose – to offer services and opportunities to the children and families in Benton County. Members contribute to the organization in a variety of ways, from spending time on our philanthropic programs to fundraising efforts in support of those programs, from individual or group craft projects, to administrative duties behind the scenes. We take great pride in what we do, and, while we work hard to reach our goals, we also strive to create a pleasant and rewarding atmosphere for our members.
The women of our chapter welcome new members who would like to help in our ongoing work to make our community a better place. It is suggested that members contribute a minimum of fifty hours per year on philanthropic programs and fundraising activities. Annual dues are $75, and new members pay a small one-time fee for their name badge and key.
We accept new members throughout the year. We also invite potential new members to an April Open House to meet members and learn about the activities of our chapter and the rewards of membership in Assistance League. During the first year of membership, each “class” of new members is oriented as to all of the chapter’s activities. The chapter President-elect serves as a “trainer” for the new member class. In addition, each new member is paired with a current member who is a mentor and guides them through the chapter’s activities. The new member class works together on a project during their orientation, promoting a feeling of service and friendship.
