2017 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 memebership 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 beofre the LWVYV Annual Meeting.

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 om February 13 and forwarded the final recommendations on February 17. See the February Voter for LWVTV recommendations.

 

Tanana Valley Program Planning

About 20 members gathered on March 25 at Raven Landing to review our current positions and activities, make recommendations, and discuss new ideas for 2017 - 2018.

 

A summary and an online poll was presented to the Tanana Valley membership to gather additional input from those who could not attend the meeting. The final recommendations were provided to the membership on April 20.
