How Does The League Select Issues For Emphasis?
In the League of Women Voters, “Program” refers to the issues we choose for concerted study, public discussion and action at local, state and national levels. These are the subjects we find most timely and compelling.
The Program Planning process is part of what makes the League a grassroots organization; each League member has the opportunity to influence the selection of issues where the local, state, and national League will focus time, talent and money.
Every two years, members of local Leagues engage in Program Planning. Based on the results of this, the Board of Directors makes recommendations to the biennial convention delegates about the program to be adopted for the coming two year period.
