From the National League of Women Voters: Convention Announcement
The LWVUS Board and staff have been observing the COVID-19 pandemic closely and considering how it could impact our upcoming 54th LWVUS Convention scheduled to be held at the end of June.
This was far from an easy decision but with the health and safety of our members as our primary concern, we have decided to transition Convention to a virtual event.
While it is unfortunate that we cannot gather in person to celebrate our 100th Anniversary and all of the amazing work our Leagues have done over the past two years we are grateful to have the technology available to us that will allow us to gather virtually. We are dedicated to making this a celebratory and productive experience. Registration for the virtual Convention will open in early May and we will provide further announcements and instructions as we have them.
More details can be found on the League Management Site.
A registration fee of $50 is necessary because there are costs involved in setting up a virtual meeting. We'll advise you of the details as soon as they're made available to us.
Meanwhile, we'd like to know who is interested in attending. Indicating interest doesn't mean you're committed and we know it may well depend on the cost. Some costs may be able to be absorbed by either state or local Leagues. That's still to be determined.
Following is a listing of the numbers of delegates each of our entities has been allotted:
- State - 3 delegates
- New Castle - 4 delegates
- Kent - 1 delegate
- Sussex - 3 delegates
