Workshops

Brief Workshop Descriptions

COMMUNICATIONS
Are you social media savvy?  Do you use Facebook, Twitter and other sites to promote your League?  This is just one of the topics that this workshop will touch on to teach your League to communicate your message more effectively. 

VOTER SERVICE
This is a busy election year.  Come hear about the wonderful products and services provided to you by your State League and how you can help connect voters with the League resources that best fit their needs.  Changes have also been made to voting in California this year.  Come and have your questions answered.

THE CHANGING FACE OF FUNDRAISING
Reality is that most local Leagues must raise money to be active in their communities.  If you’re someone in your League who is in charge of fundraising, this is the workshop for you, whether you are brand new to fundraising or a veteran.  Melissa Breach, our Executive Director, will speak to us on this important topic.

BEING PROGRESSIVE SHOULD NOT BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH
According to a February 18th Alter-Net article, “progressive leaders, activists and organizers don’t take care of themselves very well.”  Come to this workshop and pick up pointers for how to deal with our every increasing work load as Leaguers. 

INITIATIVE AND REFERENDUM STUDY
In accordance with the approval of the delegates at Convention 2011, LWVC is undertaking an update study of the Initiative and Referendum Process in California.  This workshop will answer all of your questions about this important undertaking.

Plenary Sessions

All members may attend the plenary sessions but only official delegates (President or their designee) may vote.

Observing League process is a valuable educational experience for League leaders and transparency is a core value of the League; please encourage your League board, committee chairs, and interested members to attend.

For more information, contact: Sharon Holdt, First Vice President by sending email to vicepresident "at" lwvc.org (use the @ symbol instead of "at" when you email her).
