Welcome from the LWVRI President

Call To Council 2018

The 2018 LWVRI Council will be held on Saturday, May 19 from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Jamestown Philomenian Library, 26 North Road, Jamestown. Council is held on even numbered years. At Council, delegates elect directors and officers. The Council also has the power to change or adopt programs; however, no call for changes has been put forward according to LWVRI Bylaws. Delegates also approve the budget. Local leagues, LWVRI officers, LWVRI committee chairs, and the LWV Education Fund will also present reports. All members of the League may attend the meeting and are encouraged to attend. However, only Council delegates may vote. Delegates are composed of the presidents of each local League or an alternate; one delegate chosen by each local League; the LWVRI Board of Directors; and one delegate representing the LWVRI's members-at-large. Please contact your local League, if you wish to be a delegate to Council.

There is no registration fee but members who plan to attend should contact me, LWVRI president, so we can plan to have sufficient materials to distribute.
