How Does The League Select Issues for Emphasis?
In League, Program means the issues that we choose for concerted study, education and action at local, state and national levels. Program can include both education and action.
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 Where We Stand is a companion to Impact on Issues, the League of Women Voters of the United States’ program book. Taken together, these publications and the League Principles form the basis for all action taken by Illinois Leagues on state and national issues. www.lwvil.org
