2018 Program Planning

Our Program Planning Meeting was held on January 27, 2018 at the IBEW Multipurpose Room on Airport Way. Fifteen - twenty members attended as we went through the business of examining our state and local positions, discussing our ongoing activities and prioirities and offering new ideas. We have also been asked to respond to LWVUS on advancing towards a more direct election of the president.

 

An online poll was offered to all our members to gather more input and guidance prior to submitting our final recommendations to the state board (for state issues) and our local membership (for local issues and activities). Final recommendations were delivered to the State Board on  February 27.

Online poll to help guide 2018 activities is now closed. Thanks to all who participated with ideas and thoughts.

PURPOSE OF PROGRAM PLANNING

 

The purpose of Program Planning is to discuss where League should put its energies. The basic flow is:

 

  • We formulate recommendations for BOTH the LWV Alaska (for statewide issues) and the LWV Tanana Valley (for local activities).
     
  • These recommendations are presented to the LWVTV members for review.
     
  • The LWVTV Board receives and reviews the recommendations from the Progam Planning meeting and any member input, and makes final recommendations.
    • The final recommendations to the LWVAK must be delivered to the State Board in time for them to be published to the general membership at least 30 days before the Annual Convention.
       
    • The final recommendations to the LWVTV must be presented to the LWVTV members at least 30 days before the LWVTV Annual Meeting.

2017 Program Planning

2017 State Program Planning

We held our annual Program Planning meeting to formulate our recommendations to the LWVAK Board on Saturday, January 28, 2017, at the Noel Wien Library Auditorium. About 35 members and prospective new members turned out for a lively discussion of state positions and to recommend retaining, revieiwing or revising each of the current positions. We also recommended that the LWVAK take on re-districting for study in the coming year.

 

Following the meeting, LWVTV offered an online poll to all members to gather addtional ideas and guidance. The LWVTV Board met on February 13 and forwarded the final recommendations on February 17. See the February Voter for LWVTV recommendations.
