How Does The League Select Issues for Emphasis?

In 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.

In our Local League, planning takes place each May when the Board of Directors (in our League called The Steering Committee), engages in Program Planning.  Ideally the plan for the coming year (fall through the following spring) is presented to the membership at the Annual Meeting, in late May or early June.  This year due to COVID-19, we postponed our Annual Meeting which we hope to have virtually in the fall.
