Lively Issues Discussion. Please join your fellow Whitewater League members to help shape the League's work over the next year.

During what we hope will live up to its name as a "lively" meeting, we will:

-Weigh in on the "Enhanced Diversity Through Community Alliances" initiative directed toward enhancing diversity within the League by partnering with cultural groups in our area, initially with the Latinx community.

-Entertain recommendations from members to propose a state study for the purpose of updating any current state position. Current state positions can be viewed on the LWV WI website.

-Exchange of ideas on our local league board structure, how we can effectively engage with new members, and strategies for voter registration assistance events for the 2018 election year.

If you are new to the League, this is a meeting that will expose you to its grassroots workings. It starts with discussion and leads to consensus to take concerted action toward a goal. Your voice matters! We want to hear from you.

Agenda

Diversity Initiative

The discussion will be led by Whitewater-Area League Vice President Ellen Penwell. She encourages members to bring other issues of interest to the meeting. Time permitting, we'll touch upon all concerns expressed and, at the very least, document those concerns for future conversations.

Coffee and light refreshments will be served.
