Greetings weary Leaguers,
I am overwhelmed by the work the New York Leagues have accomplished this year and all of the inventive, inclusive and imaginative ways Leagues used to GOTV. Cheers to all of you.
Everybody ready? We are looking ahead to June and our biennial Convention, June 5 & 6 in Albany. We are also looking at an alternative virtual convention that we would hold over the course of the following week, June 7 – 11. The decision will be made by the end of January.
Please start thinking about any caucuses you would like to produce or suggestions for the state to produce. Program planning is getting underway (see Issues and Advocacy below). Also, Bylaws will be under-review and we will look at any suggestions you may have.
We are all looking toward a possibly very different winter holiday season this year. I hope you all stay safe and healthy, Zoom and spread some cheer with friends and family and those of you far enough away from City lights, look to the southern sky December 21, to see Saturn and Jupiter closer than ever in our lifetimes. I saw them close, but not so close some years ago and it is magical and so much bigger than all of us.
Suzanne Stassevitch, President
League of Women Voters of NYS
