Voter Registration Training Workshops
Many thanks to Gail Bromley, Voter Services Chair, for organizing and presenting two well-received workshops on voter registration during March.
Barbara Burrell, Johnette Fields, Meredith Glicksman and Diana Hernandez assisted with the planning and also made presentations. We were glad to welcome community members as well as members of the League; everyone left with some new learning and some very helpful resources and materials.
Program Planning 2017
What a productive Program Meeting we had on Saturday, February 25,2017. President Sheila Fellerath reviewed with 23+ attendees the process of Program Planning. Our accomplishments for the year were summarized by Gail Bromley for Voter Protections, Clarice Reber for the Environmental Round Table, and Anne Eitelman for Education. The Power Point created by Bonnie Bechard can be accessed here
for your review. The last part of the program was a Brainstorming Session led by Cindy Linn that resulted in many ideas to continue or tackle for the next year. You will be receiving a summary of those ideas in the near future so that you will have time to review them before we vote on what our League will focus on for Programs in the coming year.
