How the League Selects Issues for Emphasis

In the League, Program means the issues that we choose for concerted study, education and action at local, state and national levels. Program can include both education and action.

The Program Planning process is part of what makes the League a grassroots organization; each League member has the opportunity to influence the selection of issues where the local, state, and national League will focus time, talent and money.

Every two years, members of local Leagues engage in Program Planning. Based on the results of this, the Board of Directors makes recommendations to the biennial convention delegates about the program to be adopted for the coming two year period.

Why it matters

The League of Women Voters envisions and fosters a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge and the confidence to participate.

We promote issues at the National, State and Local Level
