Making Democracy Work

Calendar of Events

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.

2018-2019 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 2018-2019 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.

Since 2018 is an election year, we expect to be offering candidate forums ahead of all contested general elections in Murfreesboro and Rutherford County.

Check back often for updates as we confirm events.
