About the event

LWVLY's annual Advocacy Program Planning Meeting will take place on Saturday, February 24, 10am-12pm. We will meet in Merritt Hall, Room 5118, on the the campus of Central Virginia Community College. Members may park in Lot 4 behind Bedford Hall. A map of CVCC is available here

We encourage every member of LWVLY to attend this meeting. The LWV is a grassroots organization, and as such, it relies on each member to share their thoughts and opinions about the direction of the organization.

At the meeting, we will discuss the positions of the LWVUS and our local positions. Before the meeting, please read a summary of LWVUS's positions, available here; if you would like to read a longer descriptions of these positions, you can do so here. Please also take some time to read our local positions, available here

The League takes action on issues that have been studied and on which the members have reached agreement regarding the position. The League's political effectiveness rests on its reputation for thorough study. There is an old League saying: "Study without action is futile; action without study is fatal." At the meeting we will ask:

  1. Do you agree that the League should continue this program?
  2. Do you have any additions to this program?
  3. Do you recommend re-study of any of these programs?
  4. Do you have any new programs for study?

We determine our program by reaching consensus. Consensus is the basis of the grassroots character and effectiveness of the League of Women Voters. For the League, "consensus" refers to the overall decision-making process by which a League determines there is substantial agreement among members to discuss and arrive at conclusions on issues. Consensus is not a vote; it is the collective opinion of a substantial number of members, representative of membership as a whole, reached after objective study and discussion of an issue. Please read about the consensus process here

Have a friend who is interested in the League? Bring them along! We will have a device so that new members can join and returning members can pay their dues if they haven't yet done so. 

See you soon!
