Per Member Payments (PMP)
Two bills every League must pay are the Per Member Payments (PMPs) due to the state and national Leagues. The rate of the PMP is determined at the LWVTX and LWVUS biennial conventions, and once voted by the attendees, is good for two years. Your League’s amount is based on League membership on January 31 each year as shown in the national member database. You will
receive an invoice from LWVTX and LWVUS in July of each year, and your League can pay the bill quarterly, semi-annually or annually.
