History of the League of Women Voters
The first local study was "a thorough study of the public school systems." Still active today a school issues committee continues to observe school board meetings, address local school referenda, school funding issues, and help organize school board candidate forums.
Over the years the Stevens Point Area LWV has participated in many local, state and national studies. After studies are completed League positions are developed and approved by the membership. Local league positions address Portage County Public Library, Recreation, Local Government, Social Services, Transportation, Nuclear Power, Education, Natural Resources, Downtown Development and Eco-municipality/sustainability. Current local league membership is approximately 50 members.
