We meet about eight times from September through June annually. Two of the meetings include a social focus, but the other meetings usually involve a program to which the public is also invited. Many of the program meetings are on Monday evenings at the New Providence Memorial Library. The League's state office in Trenton lwvnj.org offers workshops and forums each fall and holds its convention in odd-numbered years.
