LWVUS Council Report
Keyword for 2013: Collaboration
The League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) held its biennial Council in mid-June in the National Conference Center near Washington, DC.
Karen Nicholson, Kathleen Kastelic and Sheila Swearingen
Karen Nicholson, LWVUS Board member from Texas and Board Liaison for Oklahoma, met with Kathleen Kastelic, LWV Metropolitan Tulsa President, and Sheila Swearingen, LWVOK President, and offered to advise our Leagues at any time we need assistance.
Sessions were jam-packed with new ideas, training, a young leaders' panel (and advice on being an intergenerational League), and inspiring stories of League successes at state and local levels.
Council speakers focused on the critical need for the League's trusted, nonpartisan voice in these challenging times, and made it clear that the strength of the League's work is derived from collaboration at all levels.
