Women's Legislative Roundtable2019

On Wednesdays during the GA Session, the League hosts an hour-long morning briefing by Legislators and/or Advocacy/Issue groups (WLRT Women’s Legislative Roundtable Meetings). Thus, we get updates on legislation throughout the Session so that our advocacy messages are very timely. League members who attend on Wednesdays arrange to visit their legislators and committee meetings and floor sessions.

To learn more about the Roundtable, read LWV-VA’s brochure.

For those wishing to stay overnight, a special discounted rate of $139/night is available at the Berkley:

LWV-VA recently was informed that the Berkeley Hotel has established a 2 week cut off for the discounted room rate for all WLRTs and League Day.  This means that anyone who wants to overnight must make a room reservation with the Berkeley by January 9 for the WLRT on January 23, by January 16 for the January 30 WLRT, January 23 for League Day, etc.  The discounted rate is $139.00/night (double occupancy); the regular rate is about $180.00 per night.  To make reservation members should contact the Berkeley Hotel directly at 855-516-1090, ask for the “League of Women Voters rate.” 

If anyone wants to stay over the January 8 for the January 9 LWV-VA/VAratifyERA “Welcome Back” event, please email Lynn Johnston immediately, Arrangements Director, Lynn Johnston

Prepare for the 2019 General Assembly Session.

PRE-SESSION WOMEN’S 

LEGISLATIVE ROUNDTABLE:

Power Presentations from Issue Experts charge our Advocacy & Action Batteries.

In less than 10 minutes each expert, dedicated to affecting legislation on vital issues, will Predict and Preview where action will be needed.

These experts, 15 to 20 each year, have experience lobbying on the Front Lines in our General Assembly so they provide specific, ready-to-use advocacy/action messages.

This annual meeting in December prepares us to visit our own legislators at home even before the General Assembly convenes in January.

Not only do advocacy experts preview legislation but one or two Cabinet Secretaries come to describe important issues for the upcoming General Assembly session.

Opportunities to network with advocacy groups and activists are one of the top reasons given for attending.
