RESOURCES AND LINKS FOR

LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS LEADERS

 

 

As the local Leagues are having their Annual Meetings this Spring, there will be many new officers and board members.  The LWVO Membership Engagement and Development Committee has compiled a list of resources and links for new and returning League leaders.  We thought this might save some time for our local Leagues and prompt discussion.

 

We have organized the lists by topic; Advocacy, Finance & Development, Membership and Voter Services.  The majority of the links are either from the LWVO or LWVUS websites.  Some of these contacts have information and templates for documents your League may want to refer to and use.


To ease your access to information, we have removed the need to log-in to the Members Only section on the LWVO website. Now you can simply click on the tab and directly connect to the information in the section.

 A HELPFUL HINT (Use your Control Button as you Click on the Links to Open Them or you may paste the URLs into your Browser)
