Program Planning Brunch. At the beginning of each year, local Leagues gathers to plan activities for the upcoming year. We're keeping with tradition and making 2019's meeting a potluck brunch. LWVOA's Board of Directors will provide the brunch. No RSVP is required.

This meeting will help guide our efforts and resources, so you don't want to miss it. EVERYONE is welcome, including new members. This is a great way to be introduced to League's work.

In League of Women Voters, program has a specific meaning. Program refers to issues chosen by members for study and action. At each level of League, program includes items adopted for study. The study process is a deliberate and concentrated effort to learn about a topic and educate others in League about it. After study, the League will take a position on the issue. These positions are reviewed for adoption by League. The positions are what guide our advocacy work - the work we do outside of Voter Service.

LWVOA holds many positions that have been adopted throughout the years. You can find a summary of our positions at lwvoa.org. From that page, there is a link to a very detailed review of our positions.

State and National conventions are held in alternating years. This year, 2019, is the year for State Conventions. LWVMI will hold a convention May 17-19 in Novi, MI. Each local League will submit the results of their program planning meeting by March 1 in advance of the convention.
