LWVDC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES

RESOURCE COMMITTEES: Resource committees are made up of interested League members who study selected areas of League program and report their findings to the members for discussion and consensus. Once consensus is reached and a position taken, LWVDC informs voters and takes action to influence legislation and its administrative implementation.

The work of a resource committee does not end with consensus. Some meet regularly as a group to study new developments and recommend action as appropriate; in other instances, a single member monitors an element of League program. Committees welcome new members, whether making a continuing commitment or to help occasionally.

If you have interests or skills to contribute in any of the program areas listed, call the Committee Chair, a Board member, or the office.

The League's commitment to promote voter registration and provide non-partisan election information to citizens is a time-honored tradition dating back to the founding pulses of the League. Not a resource committee in the usual sense of the word, Voter Services enjoys a special status in the League as the responsibility of every member. Since the national "Motor Voter" legislation has made it so easy for people to register when they obtain or renew their driver licenses, our local League has focused on registration assistance and voter education for groups that traditionally have low participation in the election process. Once a month we register new citizens at the naturalization ceremonies at the U.S. District Courthouse.

WHAT'S WHAT IN THE LEAGUE

ACTION: The League acts to develop public support for League goals and to influence governmental decisions by supporting policies, budgets, comprehensive plans, etc. that implement League positions. Action is based on decisions made by informed members. This is what sets the League apart from other organizations. The fact that we are members of the LWVUS and LWVNCA as well as of the LWVDC makes us a powerful constituency.

ANNUAL MEETING: An Annual meeting of the membership is held in the spring for the purpose of electing officers and directors, adopting the LWVDC budget and program, and updating by-laws.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS: The elected officers and the elected and appointed directors make up the "Board" of the local League. The authority for the League operation rests with the Board. Members usually assume specific duties; they also share in the overall responsibility of the Board for the operations and financial integrity of the LWVDC.

CONCURRENCE: When appropriate, a League may concur with a position reached by other League entities without duplicating the complete study and consensus process.

CONSENSUS: This is the technique most often used for reaching member agreement. Neither unanimity nor a simple majority, it is the overall "sense of the group" as expressed through the exchange of ideas and opinions. Consensus is always based upon study and leads to action.

CONVENTION: Delegates from local and s meet in even-numbered years in National to decide on program, budget, officers and by-laws. Convention 2004 will be held in Washington, D.C.

COUNCIL: LWVUS Council meetings are hell in odd-numbered years in Washington to adopt a budget, review progress, give direction to the Board and take care of emergency business.

DUES: LWVDC dues, $45 for individuals, $60 for households and $20 for students, are set by members at the Annual Meeting. A portion of the dues is forwarded to LWVUS for national membership and LWVNCA for regional membership.

EDUCATION FUND: The LWVDC Education fund finances projects that provide the public with information about governmental issues and concerns without promoting a particular point of view. It often supports service to voters and sponsors candidates' debates. Among the publications it finances are: Know The District of Columbia; the informational series Facts & Issues; and Voters Guides produced at election time. The LWVDC Education Fund has been granted 501 (c) 3 status by the Internal Revenue Service; contributes to the Fund are tax-deductible.

LWV OF THE NATIONAL CAPITAL AREA PROGRAM 2002-2003: The National Capital Area (NCA) is an organization of Leagues in the metropolitan area who work jointly on regional issues such as Transportation and Land Use.

LWVUS PROGRAM 2002-2003: The 2002 National Convention in Miami saw the adoption of an ambitious program for 2002-2004 which consists of the retention of all existing National Positions (including the newly revised positions on Trade and the UN) and an update in 2003 of the League's position on the election of the U.S. President. In addition to supporting uniform voting qualifications and procedures, the League's current position, adopted in 1970 and revised in 1982, calls for election of the president by direct popular vote and abolition of the Electoral College. The systematic review of LWVUS positions as approved by Convention 2000 will continue, and will use the concurrence method of securing member input as was done with the UN and Trade positions. Support for full DC voting representation in Congress and for an annual, predictable Federal Payment to D.C. remains among the LWVUS positions on Representative Government.

MEMBER: Any U.S. citizen of voting age who accepts the purpose of the League may become a member of a local League by paying the dues set by that League. Membership in LWVDC automatically confers membership in the LWVUS and the LWVNCA.

POSITION: Statement of governmental policy supported by the League on the basis of member consensus following careful study. Positions form the basis for League action. Local and regional positions are printed in Where We Stand; national positions are published in Impact on Issues; regional positions are also published in LWVNCA Annual Meeting Workbook.

PRINCIPLES: League principles provide the authorization for adoption of national, state and local program.

PROGRAM: Those governmental issues that League members choose for concerted study and action comprise League program. It includes both adopted positions upon which action is taken and issues for study that will lead to a position and action.

UNIT COUNCIL: The monthly meeting of Unit Chairs or their representatives with the Unit Director to learn of Board action, exchange information and prepare for Unit meetings. Unit Council provides a conduit between the Board and Units.
