  • Program Planning 2016

    January 20, 2016 at 8:33 am

    Hello, fellow League members! It is that time of year again – Program Planning 2016. Your local, state, and national Leagues need you!

    Every January your local LWV Northfield-Cannon Falls holds an annual “program” meeting. This year's focus is National (each year, program planning alternates between State and National issues). You will be invited to make program suggestions.  Afterward, the local program for the upcoming year is adopted by membership vote at the annual meeting.

    Here are details:

    • Date:   Saturday, January 30
    • Time:  Coffee and social time: 9:30 a.m. Program planning meeting: 10–11:30 a.m.
    • Location: Friends Meeting House, 512 Washington Street, Northfield

    We are pleased that Teena Keiser will be leading the discussion and consensus process as she has in the past few years.  She is experienced, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic.  Our board vice president, Allene Moesler, will be joining Teena this year as discussion leader.

    LWV Northfield-Cannon Falls depends on your input. The National League (LWVUS) recommends that we look at certain themes, such as “Making Democracy Work,” with the focus on voter rights and voter protection on national, state, and local levels.  The theme of money in politics would also be included.   Local leagues may either follow the LWVUS recommendation or forward other recommendations to state and national levels. Bring your recommendation for the LWVUS program to the gathering.  For more information and “food for thought,” please read Allene’s informative article in the January E-Catalyst.
