We’re setting priorities and determining positions as a national organization and at home this year. The meeting to discuss national priorities and positions is Sat., Feb. 15, 9 a.m.-12 p.m., at the Kent Free Library, 312 W. Main St., Kent. Bring breakfast items to share. Coffee and tea will be provided.
In even-numbered years, we look at national positions and are given the opportunity to make our voices heard in developing and refining the positions that LWVUS delegates will be voting on at the national convention in June.
The first step is to prepare! That means becoming familiar with the U.S. League’s positions and the method for changing, adding or dropping positions. Check out these documents to get a head start: Position Summaries and Definitions and Things to Consider.
Following the meeting, we will report to the U.S. League any actions that, by consensus, we recommend go to the convention for consideration. If you want to dig further into the U.S. League’s positions, you can read the full Impact on Issues 2019-2020 here.

Water St., Kent, the usual site of the AMMs, 7 p.m. It’s a chance to recommend new studies and make comments about how we advocate locally. Check out the local positions here.
