Leadership Roles and Development

ABC's of a Streamlined League

The League is one organization with three levels. Remember that you have people resources -- from volunteer colleagues such as yourself in other local Leagues to your state League and your LWVUS Board Liaisons. Sharing ideas and supporting each other between levels of the League is an important benefit of belonging to the League! Leadership in the League can be easy and fun! This publication created by the LWVUS Streamlining Committee composed of LWVUS Board Members and Staff will help you make it so.
