League News – May 2017
May 25, 2017
Celebrating the 2017 convention, our new LWVNC website, and voting rights!
Over 100 members from 17 of our 18 chapters across North Carolina joined together for the 2017 convention in Greensboro, May 5-7, 2017. Awards were given to Audrey Espisito and Gail Bromley, as well as the LWV of Granville County, the LWV of Lower Cape Fear, and the NC Justice Center. Find photos and a full convention program listing on our convention web page.
League Action Teams (LAT’s) are organizing at the state level with the goal of providing resources for local Leagues to use when educating and advocating on LWVNC issues of emphasis. Members are encouraged to participate in monthly calls and webinars, often featuring experts related to the team’s focus issue. Each team has a dedicated web page where its events and resources can be accessed. Link to more information about each of these League Action Teams.
