January 3, 2015 General Meeting
Program Planning: Think Outside the Box
Think big, Think new, Think beyond. That is the agenda for the traditional January program planning meeting. In “League Land lingo,” the term Program comprises the whole body of League principles, positions, and actions. Yes, members will be recommending monthly meeting topics, but we will be doing so much more. The Board is seeking recommendations for new and different activities we might initiate to educate and engage the public.
What other organizations could we collaborate with to benefit both our missions? What could be some fun and exciting fundraising events we haven’t tried? What strategies might we adopt to communicate more effectively with our legislators? How could we make better use of social media as well as traditional media?
We have taken some bold steps this year with a billboard, yard signs, and library collaboration. But we can do so much more to fulfill our purpose: TO PROMOTE POLITICAL RESPONSIBILITY THROUGH INFORMED AND ACTIVE PARTICIPATION OF CITIZENS ION GOVERNMENT AND TAKE ACTION ON SELECTED GOVERNMENTAL ISSUES.
League is a grassroots organization dependent on its members to guide and energize its leaders. We’re counting on you at both the local and state level. We will also be making recommendations to the state League Board for a two-year state study.
We look forward to seeing you!
Yard signs: Suggested donation $10 each.
