The League holds monthly meetings to which everyone is invited.We have a presentation by local officials on topics which have an impact on the county’s finances and consequently our taxes.

We also take part in various public meetings.

We have letters and articles published in local newspapers.

We give radio and television interviews.

We meet with County officials including the County Executive, members of the County Council, member of the School Board of Montgomery County Public Schools, administrative staff members and senior officials in various areas of county government.

We meet with influential members of the county.

We communicate with other organizations in the county and state on topics affecting our taxes.

We serve as volunteers on several county committees.
