LWV of Clackamas County Hosts 2017 State Convention in Wilsonville

Libby Medley, Host Committee Coordinator
About the time you receive this issue of the Clackson, the 2017 Annual League of Women Voters of Oregon’s State Convention will have begun. From the early days of searching the county for a likely venue to the final stages, ending with an evaluation after the fact, hosting the Convention has been an energy-concentrated, idea-filled, yearlong effort. There are many who deserve recognition for their role.

First on the list is Rhonda Liveslay, who chaired the Lane County League host committee two years ago. Her wonderful, detailed notes and advice made this task so much easier!

Next is the State Convention Committee: Robin Wisdom, Chris Vogel, Norman Turrill, Sally McKain, Kathleen Hersh, Alice Bartelt, Sarah Andrews, [plus Host Committee Representatives Marge Easley & Libby Medley] for their hard work in venue selection and site provisions, speaker and workshop arrangements (including video recording the Keynote Speaker) plus supporting our Host Committee and picking up the loose ends.

And finally, we have reason to be proud of our Clackamas County Host Committee: Hilly Alexander, Betty Barber, Marge Easley, Norma Jean Germond, Lyn Gordon, June Hensala, Robi Ingram-Rich, Lorie James, Katie Lu, Libby Medley, Karen Sherman, Sylvia Smith, Judi Umaki, and their support teams, listed below (italics denotes non-LWVCC members):

It has been a delight working with everyone. Thank you! To those of you who wanted to help but kept having conflicts, there are always plenty of opportunities to participate in League events. Come to our Annual Meeting on May 20 to help plan for the coming year and meet the new board members. Attend our Patio Party in June to celebrate the completion of this project and all that we have accomplished in the past year. Membership awards will be given out; a speaker TBA will entertain us; the food will be yummy (because we have such terrific culinary talent in our midst). There will be opportunities to purchase our League cookbook and pay your dues for the coming year.


Annual Meeting will be held Sat., May 20 at 10:00 a.m. at the Oswego Pointe Clubhouse, 5065 Foothills Dr., Lake Oswego. Good attendance is necessary to have a quorum to conduct our business. Coffee, tea and baked goods will be served.

Three agenda items need your assistance. The first is a consideration of changing our local League status from a 501(c)(4) to a 501(c)(3). Our state League made this switch at the 2015 state convention. A second need is suggestions for programs and speakers. Fresh ideas are such a help to the Board in planning programs of interest to you. The third is Directions to the Board where you have the opportunity to make general or specific suggestions to help make our organization better. Please give some prior thought to these items and come prepared to share your ideas.
