2019 Chapter Program Meetings
LWV Chapter Program meetings will be held in January 2019 for both East and West side chapters. This year we will focus on state and local program that will culminate in state convention in Columbus on May 10-12 and our own LWV Greater Cleveland annual meeting on June 1. For specific dates, see the events on the right side of this page.
This year the meetings will be run a little differently. We will focus on the issues that you care about where we have existing positions and will discuss how we can have an impact on that issue. If we do not have an existing position, we will discuss how to create one.
We will not read these documents word for word at the meeting. You should become familiar with them prior to the meeting and if you wish to makes changes, let us know either before or at the meetings. We will instead focus on our overall program goals for the year and have a discussion on how to achieve them.
