  • rsvped +1 for 2021 Annual Membership Meeting 2021-03-04 16:00:31 -0500

    Virtual Annual Membership Meeting

    Calling All Members

    April 24, 2021

    Each spring, all 700-plus local Leagues in the country hold annual membership meetings. These meetings reaffirm the League’s grassroots foundation and ensure that members guide the League’s future.

    On Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 11 a.m., LWVAAC will convene its members on Zoom to conduct the important business of approving our 2021-2022 budget, electing officers and directors, adopting a program for the coming year, and providing guidance to the Board about activities, events, advocacy or initiatives that members want LWVAAC to undertake. The LWVAAC Board relies on members’ active participation in this yearly event.

    Around March 26, members will receive a digital copy of the Preliminary Annual Meeting Workbook, an important precursor to the meeting. It will contain the proposed budget, nominating slate and program recommendations, as well as each Board Director’s portfolio report to recap LWVAAC’s activities over the current fiscal year (2020-2021). Reviewing the Workbook is a good way to learn about our League. Email [email protected] to request a print copy of the Workbook.

    In addition to official League business, the 2021 Annual Meeting will feature guest speaker Kathleen M. Koch, Executive Director for Arundel Community Development Services, Inc. (ACDS), a nonprofit housing and community development agency established to create and retain affordable housing opportunities. Affordable housing has long been a public policy focus of LWVAAC; a study group led by LWVAAC Director Jeanne Jehl has recently completed a review of our League's position.

    RSVP below to receive virtual meeting information.
