Feeling unprepared for convention? Attend a webinar!

LWVC convention occurs only once every two years, and we want to make certain everyone who attends can participate to the fullest.  To help our delegates (and guests) prepare, we’ve scheduled a series of webinars to provide a brief orientation to the key decisions we’ll be making, and the processes we’ll be using to make those decisions.

The webinars will feature a short introduction to the topic followed by ample time for Q&A.  Please try to join the webinars on your computer so you can participate via the chat and question windows.   If you have not used GoToMeeting before, you can acquaint yourself with the technology here:

Each of the webinars will be recorded, and we’ll make the recordings available for those who can’t join us.

How many delegates will represent your League?

click-to-registerHas your League decided who will be a delegate for LWVC Convention? The number of delegates each League receives is determined by the LWVUS membership numbers on January 31. A League with 1-50 members receives two delegate spots (the president and one delegate). When membership reaches 51 voting members, the local League receives one additional delegate, then one additional delegate added for each additional 50 members. Please refer to the LWVC bylaws for more details about representation.

Early bird registration ends on April 15, and Full Registration rates increase to $450. If you haven’t registered yet, now is a good time to do so!

What if my League doesn’t use all of the delegates allotted to us?

If you have delegate spots that your League will not be using, please contact us. There are members who are not delegates for their own League, and would enjoy participating as a delegate for another League rather than a non-voting member.
