What is Program Planning? This is the meeting where LWV members come together to figure out the issues and ideas to be investigated for the 2015-16 League season. What issues are most dear to you? What would YOU like League to work on? This is your chance to bring members together around an issue that you are passionate about so that change can be implemented from the grass roots up to the highest levels of government and popular opinion. Watch your email for location and details.

Kick off 2015

Program Planning is Next for LWV in 2015

Join LWVGE members on Saturday, January 24, 8:30 a.m., at Brookdale Senior Housing (Formerly The Meadows) for a morning of lively discussion about issues and topics of interest to be explored during the 2015-16 League "season."

In June, the Leagues in Illinois will come together for convention, so each local League reviews state positions to make sure they are still valid and current during this time.

If a current position needs further study, then this is the time to bring it up! Also, each year the League in Glen Ellyn reviews local positions for possible updates and new ideas.

Do you have a passion for something the local community and/or state of Illinois should know about? This is the meeting to air your concerns and convince your League colleagues to get on your bandwagon. In this manner, League studies and positions--ranging from immigration reform to child labor--have been brought to national attention. This is grass roots at its finest!
