Interest Group Leaders
As Interest Group Coordinators and Leaders, you are automatically granted administrative web access to your groups, which allows you to perform a variety of tasks.
Additionally, as an Interest Group Coordinator, you will receive email notification when a member joins or leaves your group via the TLWC website. You don’t need to reply to these messages; however, these notifications give you the opportunity to welcome new group members and add them to your group communication, including Evite.
Do your interests lie elsewhere? Do you have a passion you'd like to share with others? Any member can start a new interest group and invite other members to join.

Interest Group Guidelines
Each interest group leader communicates with individual members by email or the Evite program, setting their own guidelines for meeting procedures, locations, times, activities, fees, supply needs, food requirements, etc. This information will be shared with the group at the beginning of the year and throughout the year as needed.
