Resources for WLL Teams

Below are resources, tools and tips for our Women, Land & Legacy teams. Please contact us if you have questions about these resources or would like to get a WLL chapter started in your county.

Getting Started

Development Guide (coming soon)
The Development Guide is our comprehensive tool for developing local teams, understanding WLL policies and history, and planning for local events. The current Development Guide will be updated.  There are a few CDs of the current version available.  If you are interested in receiving one, contact Tanya Meyer-Dideriksen at tanya.meyer@usda.gov.

Team Agreement Form
This Team Agreement Form is an agreement between local teams and the State Team regarding WLL language to use in promoting and discussing WLL and responsibilities of the Local Team vs. the State Team.

Listening and Learning Session Resources

Websites of Interest
This Websites of Interest hand-out can be a useful resource for participants to help them become more familiar with agencies and organizations. Adapting the listing to include information for your local offices is recommended.

Presenter List 
This Presenter List includes some of the presenters local teams have used for specific topics since Fall 2020. If you have additional suggestions please send them to Tanya Meyer-Dideriksen at tanya.meyer@usda.gov.

Learning Session Topics List
This Learning Session Topics List includes Learning Session topics that local teams have included in Learning Sessions since Fall 2020.  The foundation of Women Land and Legacy is to seek input from local women for Learning Session topics, so it is advised not to rely too heavily on this list.  If you have additional suggestions, please send to Tanya Meyer-Dideriksen at tanya.meyer@usda.gov.
