What is a Program Planning Meeting?
The Program Planning Meeting is an opportunity for league members to make recommendations regarding the work of the league in education and advocacy.
During January and February 2020, local and state Leagues will conduct program planning and make program recommendations in a general membership meeting or a board meeting. Leagues are also asked to share information on how their work will impact the Campaign for Making Democracy Work® as well as identify LWVUS positions that they intend to use in education and lobbying.
Recommended Program: The Campaign for Making Democracy Work®
The LWVUS Board recommends that Program 2020-2022 continue the campaign for Making Democracy Work® with Leagues throughout the country working on:
- Voting Rights
- Improving Elections
- Campaign Finance/Money in Politics
What is League Program?
League program is the education and advocacy platform that we adopt to move our mission forward. The program is based on League principles and positions on public policy issues.
Article XII, Section 1 and 2 of the US League of Women Voters Bylaws:
Principles (Sec.1) The Principles are concepts of government supported by the League and are the authorization for adoption of national, state and local program. They may be amended by the convention in the same way as program is adopted under Section 2 of this Article.
Program (Sec. 2.) The program shall consist of action to implement the Principles and those governmental issues chosen by the convention for concerted study or concurrence and action.
