This is a sharing center where any Virginia League can share ideas and information with other Leagues. We are just getting it started, so please be patient.
If you have an idea that you would like to share, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a general idea of what you propose and your contact information.
Some serious Kudos to LWV Fairfax Area for a great idea they have implemented.
This is a tool that could easily be modified by any League and used as a way to help track those ideas that come in. Nice job Fairfax!
Thanks to Amy Hjerstedt for a great flyer to use for Join Us possibilities.
Voter Education Events
Do not miss an opportunity to help voters understand more about “what” as well as “who” they are voting for. Assuming that people understand what School Board, Council, Delegate, or any other elected officials can and cannot do, can lead to disappointment by voters. LWV South Hampton Roads gives an example of how to better prepare voters to assess candidates by knowing what they can do in the positions for which they are running. https://lwv-va.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/SchoolBoard101_2up-2.pdf
Voter Registration Events
This is for ideas on how to make voter registration events effective and fun!
Anything Else that Increases Your Visibility
(your ideas needed)
Issue Reports on Relevant Topics
What issues are important to you and your members? You do not have to do a full Consensus/Concurrence Study. Simply get folks together to do an informal process to learn about a topic and then write up your report. Share your report with other Leagues here.
Special Event Ideas
Special Events include activities like “Sips & Civility”, “Game Nights”, “Hot Topic” get together, Watching documentaries together in someone’s home, etc. What ideas do you have?
