Please join your local League of Women Voters Umpqua Valley on Tuesday, Jan. 24 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Douglas County Library, 1409 NE Diamond Lake Blvd. in Roseburg, for the annual Program Planning meeting.
The program will include a historical look at the League and its work along with “Program Planning”, that is, planning its work for the coming year. Each year in January the LWV reviews its past positions and asks membership for new study ideas. At this meeting we will decide on a local level what our members need to address current and upcoming issues in Douglas County and statewide.
One issue that is on the agenda is a position regarding Civil Discourse. Click on this link — civil-discourse-concurrence-proposal — to read the concurrence proposal. There are also references to check out. This is a proposal from the LWV Clackamas. This will be voted on at the state League convention in May 2017.
Here is a link to the program planning form 2017-19 that you can print and bring to the Jan. 24th meeting.
The meeting is free and open to the public.
