Survey
Your Survey Answers Will Direct Our Work. Please Participate! 

The LWVIL Issues Committee has formed a sub-committee to address the consolidation of governmental entities in Illinois, a hot topic with a lot of legislative activity again this Spring session.
 
We've put together a survey to find out what is happening in your communities and what your League has done on this issue in the past. Please find the survey at this link:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/THFK8FZ 
 
We have eight completed surveys and would love 100% participation.  It just takes a few minutes and will be very helpful in directing our work in the coming months. Please complete by March 1st. Thank you so much and if you have any questions, contact Hilary Denk at  hdenk@lwvil.org.
