While we wanted nothing more than to find a way to hold the convention in person, we believe doing so would be irresponsible. So, with the health and safety of our members as our primary concern, we have decided to transition 2020 Convention to a virtual event.   

We are still working through all details that a virtual Convention entails, but we can share the following with you:

  • Business sessions will be held on June 25–27, and we are planning the agenda with consideration towards all time zones.
  • We will host a full plenary and are working closely with our parliamentarian to observe all governance requirements for a virtual space. All requirements around delegates, quorum, and how we conduct our business will remain the same. Detailed instructions will be sent to all delegates ahead of the first plenary session.
  • We will include the Convention Awards as part of this virtual experience, and details can be found here.
  • All current registrants will receive a full refund. An email from our registration software will be sent with instructions soon. We are also offering registrants the option to convert their registration fee to a donation to the League of Women Voters Education Fund. 
  • We are working with the hotels on all existing hotel reservations. All reservations will be canceled at no penalty. We will alert you of any action required on your part as we receive that information from the hotels.

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 technology available that will allow us to gather virtually. We are dedicated to making this a celebratory and productive experience for all attendees.

Registration for the virtual Convention will open in early May, and we will provide further announcements and instructions as we have them.

If you have any questions, please contact Christina Davis, Special Projects Manager, at cdavis@lwv.org.

In Solidarity,
