What is “Program Planning”? Program Planning happens once a year at the local League level. It is the time when we study the positions taken by our League on the local, state, and national levels. The state and national positions are reviewed bi-annually aligning with the upcoming conventions. For 2018, we will study Local and National League positions in preparation for our May LWV CVA Annual Meeting as well as the June LWV US convention, this year in Chicago. Do we wish to retain current positions, to act on them, and/or to begin new studies with the goal of establishing consensus and positions for action on other issues? Our positions give the League a voice! This is what your League of Women Voters is all about and Program Planning is your opportunity to weigh in.
You can find our Local Positions described in the LWV CVA 2017-2018 Membership Handbook on: Education, Child Care, Government, Health and Family Life Education, Health Services in Area Public Schools, Housing, Natural Resources (Energy, Land Use, Water), Regional Library System, and Transportation.
For LWV US positions, click on the 2016-2018 issue of “Impact on Issues, a Guide to Public Policy Positions.” Rosalie Simari, LWV CVA vice-president, will filter this document and zero in on issues that are of greatest concern to our League. For further information, contact Kerin Yates, 964-1840.
