Fostering Diversity in the League

We All Can Be League Members!
We All Can Be League Members!
One of LWVGR's commitments is to have our League represent a more diverse population consistent with the area it serves. The Board of Directors has requested a temporary committee be formed under the leadership of LWVGR VP Jo Minor to consider ways this goal can be met. She is looking for members, both long time and new, who might wish to serve on this committee. The committee will require a six month commitment and final report to be submitted to the Board of Directors. Approval of the recommendations will be by LWVGR membership at the Annual Meeting in June, 2019.
Please contact Jo at if you are interested.
