Notice of 2020 LWVWI Virtual Annual Meeting

The state League will hold a virtual Annual Meeting of League members and friends of the League on Saturday, June 13th. Although the exact time and details of the meeting are yet to be announced, please save the date.

From the LWVWI:
"We couldn’t have imagined the added significance of our theme a mere three months ago. Today we dare to dream that our coronavirus stricken world will heal and right itself. Today we persevere through previously unimaginable new lifeways with compassion, kindness and respect for one another. Please join us as we come together online on June 13th to continue the course of League action. Feel resilience, inspiration and hope as we share the League’s recent accomplishments and plans for the new fiscal year."

If you are interested in representing the La Crosse League as a delegate, please let us know by Friday, May 15 via email: .
Update on LWVUS Convention 2020
The LWVUS board and staff have been observing the COVID-19 pandemic closely and considering how it could impact our upcoming 54th LWVUS Convention scheduled to be held at the end of June in Washington, DC and we know many of you have been wondering the same. We appreciate your messages and the support offered as we’ve taken the time needed to thoughtfully consider all options. 
This was far from an easy decision but with the health and safety of our members as our primary concern, we have decided to transition Convention to a virtual event.  
More information is available  here .
