10:00-12:00: Formal Program Planning
We will address the program priorities for the National and State Leagues, followed by our priorities for the Minneapolis League. We will use the Zoom breakout feature and discuss our issues of interest, refine them, and come back together for a final vote. The top 9-10 issues will make up our civic education programming for the 2021-2022 year.
Program Planning during Covid-19
Members are being asked to submit their ideas in advance on topics that are relevant to the city of Minneapolis and of interest to them. Complete the survey here to share your ideas. The topics will be collated prior to Program Planning.
It is important to hear from all our members on issues of interest and concern. Note that you must be a current member of the League in order to vote.
More information will be forthcoming prior to January 30. We hope you will read the materials carefully when you receive them, as they will give you a thorough understanding of Program Planning for the League. Stay tuned!
Calling New Members
Working on a committee to develop a speaker program around issues will give you a broader understanding of the business of the LWV. Through this work you will get to know others in the League who have similar interests, and leaders in the field of your interest. Sign up by completing the survey.
