Annual Membership Meeting 2023
An important requirement for all local Leagues is to hold an annual membership meeting. These meetings reaffirm the League’s grassroots foundation and ensure that members guide the League’s future.
On Saturday, April 15, 2023, LWVAAC members will come together to conduct the important business of approving our 2023-2024 budget, updating our bylaws, electing our officers and directors, adopting our public policy positions, and providing guidance to the Board about activities, events, advocacy or initiatives that members want our League to undertake. LWVAAC relies on members’ active participation in this yearly event.
The proposed budget, bylaws, program recommendation and slate of nominees are found here. Members are encouraged to review them prior to the business meeting on April 15. Please contact [email protected] with questions or concerns. Upon request to [email protected], a print copy of the preliminary reports will be mailed to you.
We'll take some time to greet each other and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea before getting down to business. Following the official meeting, we'll reward your hard work on our League's behalf with a delicious buffet brunch. You'll also have the opportunity to get acquainted with the new Anne Arundel County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mark T. Bedell.
The fee for the Annual Membership Meeting and Brunch is $40/person in advance; $42/person at the door. RSVP by April 8.
The LWVAAC Board looks forward to seeing you on Saturday, April 15.

Restoring The Chesapeake Bay
Restoring the Chesapeake Bay: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Bay Champion Gerald Winegrad
Sunday, April 23 at 2 p.m. Busch Library, 1410 West St, Annapolis
Former Maryland Senator Gerald Winegrad has devoted himself to environmental causes for 53 years. His presentation will examine the results of 39 years of personal involvement in formal efforts to restore the Chesapeake Bay.
Bay restoration is based on limiting nutrients and sediment that are causing dead zones and living resources to decline. Mr. Winegrad will pull no punches in revealing the inconvenient truths on the issues. Learn from this expert insider about the successes and failures toward these goals, and how we as individuals can take action to ensure a healthier Bay. This is an event you won’t want to miss.
Mr. Winegrad is a life-long Marylander, environmental attorney, former state senator, member of the Chesapeake Bay Commission, and a graduate school professor—teaching a course he wrote on Bay restoration.
