The Countdown Begins

We Are Moving to ClubExpress

February 1st!

What to Expect:

LWVMC is transitioning to an association management system called ClubExpress, which will allow us to complete many functions from one central location. It combines many of the services we currently subscribe to individually onto one platform, which increases efficiency of administrative tasks for our office administrator and volunteers.

If you are a current member:
You will receive a Welcome Email from ClubExpress. An example of what that email will look like can be found here. It will contain information about how to log into the Members Only Portal in addition to your login credentials. Logging into the Members Only Portal is NOT REQUIRED.

If you are not a current member:
You will not receive any immediate correspondence from ClubExpress, but are invited to explore the new website and/or to join the League or renew your membership by visiting (the URL for our website will remain the same, even as we transition between the old and new website).

Melanie Conklin, Deputy Editor

"Wednesday’s meeting — run by conservative Republican Sen. Kathy Bernier (R-Chippewa Falls)  —  was two-and-a-half hours of verifiable facts, presented by experts in their fields giving excruciatingly minute details on the redundant levels of security and checks done before, during and after Election Day in Wisconsin."
