If you are interested in being nominated to the state board, we strongly encourage you to get to know the LWVC and let them get to know you by volunteering with them. You can ask to take on a specific limited assignment, to serve on a task force, or even a state committee ongoing. Learn more about paid and volunteer opportunities here.
2013-15 Slate Nominating Process
The nominating committee invites and encourages every League member to consider serving on the state board of directors. The slate of officers will be selected by spring of 2013, elections will be held at the LWVC Convention in May 2013, and the next two-year term begins July 1, 2013. Nominations are being accepted to fill unexpected vacancies in the slate, and we are sometimes asked to help fill vacant positions mid-term, so please submit your information even after this deadline. You can read about the slate on the Convention blog.
Time and expertise given at the state board level is an extension of all the good work League members contribute to their local and regional Leagues. It is the next step in the progression to enable your hard work to come to fruition. When we serve, we are helping the League as a whole be the best it can be. From our beginnings we have been a grassroots organization, and our success depends on a large grassroots base to encourage informed and active participation in government. Participation will not only be an exciting and rewarding opportunity but a great contribution to the League.
