League of Women Voters of the Charlottesville Area

"The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy."

LWV CVA 2020 Program Planning to be held virtually on Sunday, December 6, 2-4 pm.

Nov 16, 2020

What is “Program Planning”?   Program Planning happens annually at the local League level.  It is the time when we consider the positions taken by our League on the local and state or national levels. Our positions give the League a voice and are the result of an established process: the LWV takes action on an issue or advocates for a cause when there is an existing League position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause.  Without a position, League action/advocacy cannot be taken.  This is what your League of Women Voters is all about and Program Planning is your opportunity to weigh in.

For 2021, we will study Local and State League positions in preparation for our May 3, 2021 LWV CVA Annual Meeting as well as the June 5 LWV-VA convention.  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?  As part of this review, we will hear from committee members who will be suggesting updating current local program “Action” statements. Our recommendations from this meeting will be presented to our members for approval at the Annual Meeting in May.

To prepare for our 2020 meeting, check out our Local Program:  Positioned for Action as described in the LWV CVA 2020-2021 Membership HandbookOn pages 15 -21, you will find “Action” items on: Government, Natural Resources, and Social Policy.  (These positions can also be found on this website:  go to the pull-down menu, “Explore the League” – Advocacy, then click on “Local.”)  Carol recommends that you read the Program section (pages 15-21) of the LWV CVA 2020-21 Membership Handbook before you come to the meeting—meeting time is short, there are many decisions to be made, and your advance preparation will make a real difference!    

To check out the LWV-VA positions,  go to LWV-VA.org and click on the drop-down menu “Action” at the top of the home page; then follow the links for the LWV-VA Positions.
