From the Co-PresidentsSummer is an important season for League leaders—one of introspection and renewal. The LWVCC Board met for its annual retreat in June to think creatively about ways to increase our visibility and effectiveness in the community and hopefully gain a few new members in the process. Now it’s time to put some of those ideas into practice. We’re looking forward to seeing many of you at Fall Kickoff on September 16, our first event of the year. And what better way to energize us for the year ahead than to hear Charlie Hinkle of the ACLU speak on the topic of voting rights! And since membership recruitment is always on our minds, please bring a friend or two to this fun and interesting dinner evening. “Many hands make light work” is a saying we’re taking seriously. Leadership burnout can be an issue when just a few folks do all the work, so we’re doing our best to lighten the load by having co-presidents, an active board of directors, and members who take on specific short term tasks in off-board roles. It’s been gratifying to see everyone pull together as a team with the common goal of making LWVCC a relevant and vibrant organization. We have five new members so far, so let’s keep the momentum going.
Marge Easley and Sonja Kollias, co-presidents
