First Ever LWVMP Quarterly Meeting

Looking to meet old and new LWVMP friends? Interested in learning more about LWVMP? Find out what's happening with us and how to make a difference in our local communities!

Join us for our first ever quarterly "All LWVMP" meeting on the afternoon of Sunday, September 22. 

When : Sunday, September 22, 1-4pm

Where : The Newton , 300 W Camelback Rd. Phoenix

Event Agenda

  • 1-2pm: New Member Orientation. All new members and anyone interested in joining LWVMP are invited. It would be lovely for our long time members to join us as well and help welcome our new people. Refreshments will be provided.

  • 2-3pm: Kick off the New League Year. We will review plans for our 2019/2020 year, share information on ongoing League efforts and invite people to join our teams.

  • 3-4pm: Guest speaker Terry Goddard will share history and information on the Outlaw Dirty Money initiative. One of LWVMP's major projects is to help get this initiative to end dark money on the 2020 Arizona ballot. We're doing that by circulating petitions and gathering signatures, and we will provide training to help you get involved in this important effort.

**Those members already gathering signatures may bring their completed petitions with them to turn in. A Notary will be present**

We would love for you to join us for the entire afternoon. If you're not available to full time, that's okay! Please choose the sessions that work best for you.

Many thanks to The Newton for allowing us to use the Common Room. This venue shares space with Changing Hands Phoenix , Southwest Gardener and Southern Rail Restaurant . Perfect for browsing, a quick bite or a cold drink after the meeting.
