The program planning process is one of the important ways through which the League focuses its grassroots work to align each part of the organization with the others and with the League's mission.
Program planning is a valuable League tool for identifying issues for focus and for insuring that League resources, human and financial, from our grassroots volunteers to our professional staff, are engaged where they have the most impact. This process is appropriate for all three levels of League. State Leagues undertake program planning before state conventions where a program of education and advocacy for the state League is adopted for the following biennium. Local Leagues do program planning before their annual meetings where local program is adopted for the following year.
What will our top priorities for the coming year be? For which policies should we advocate, educate, and inform?
We are being asked to concur with (adopt at State level) two California League organizations on several positions:LWVC positions and program planning process.
