A short training session is all that is needed to get you started. Please give joining the Observer Core your consideration. Even if you are unable to be an Observer, LWV members are encouraged to attend Council and Board meetings periodically as part of their civic responsibility.
Please consider being on our steering committee to plan the program. Call me or email me if you are interested. The steering committee requires at least 10 members to plan the day-long workshop. Some of the committee positions that need to be filled include tasks such as:
Contacting our local high schools to encourage participation from the students;
Inviting women elected officials;
Purchasing and preparing the materials for the participants;
Training our workshop facilitators;
Venue and menu;
Overseeing the many tasks related to the program the day of the workshop.
Running and Winning has become a signature event of the Grosse Pointe League of Women Voters, and you will have fun putting the workshop together! Believe me or just ask those members that have been there!
