We are grateful to have LWV Ripon Area as host for this year’s meeting. The small town of Ripon, just 10 miles down the road from the Conference Center, is rich in political history. It’s home to the birthplace of the Republican Party (1854) and the birthplace of Carrie Chapman Catt (b. January 9, 1859). Chapman Catt was a leading voice in the final campaign for women’s suffrage and key founder of the League. Plan to stop by her historical marker during your stay! Members of the LWV Ripon Area, will help you find your way.
We are very excited about gathering together amid so much relevant and influential local history to conduct the League’s business, be inspired, and launch the Centennial celebrations of the League and the passing of the 19th Amendment. Please plan to join us on June 8th!
