The League relies heavily on contributed income, primarily from membership, for the necessary funds to engage in annual advocacy and outreach activities. Membership makes it possible to regularly monitor issues, legislation, and regulations impacting the Project, and to take action when needed, including sending letters and emails, coordinating tours, and participating in in-person meetings with policy makers in Olympia, Washington D.C., and other locations.
Additionally, membership supports the League’s effort to provide timely, fact-based information and status updates to stakeholders. The League’s newsletter, Voice of the Project, is a well-known and appreciated publication.
In 2018, member support helped fund:
