We sponsor meetings and events for the public and League members. This calendar includes our own meetings as well as community events which may be of particular interest to our membership.

2017-2018 Schedule

We follow the academic calendar and have at least one activity per month from August to May. We do not meet in December.

For the 2017-2018 calendar, membership meetings will generally be held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, however, due to availability of speakers or facilities, there may be some variance in that schedule.

Check back often for updates as we further confirm speakers and activities.

MTSU vs. Belmont Model Debate: Gun Ownership in America. In today's fractured political climate, we in the League are concerned that many Americans have lost sight of what a healthy debate looks like. That's why the League of Women Voters of Murfreesboro/Rutherford County is pleased to present a model debate between two award-winning teams: MTSU and Belmont. Local university debaters will demonstrate exemplary political discourse as they consider issues around the topic of "The Right to Safety: Gun Ownership in America."

A cornerstone for these teams is integrity, respect and kindness, as well as preparation on the issues based on current law, history, and more. Both teams will be prepared to argue either for or against the questions presented and will adhere to established rules for arguments and rebuttals in the allotted time. This format does not allow questions from the audience.

It is important to note that team members may not be arguing their personal beliefs on any questions considered. The League will share our national position on the issue after the debate.

The event will be held on Tuesday evening, April 17th, from 6:30 - 8:00PM in the Council Chambers at Murfreesboro City Hall and is open to the public. We hope you can join us on Tuesday - and bring a friend!

This program serves as the League's general membership meeting for April.
