League of Women Voters

of Greater Omaha

 








What do League members do?

 

Members of LWVGO:

 

*Participate in studies to help determine League positions on issues.

 

*Attend general monthly meetings where we enjoy lunch and learn about a subject of local, state or national interest 

 

*Read books on public policy and discuss with the League's book club.

 

*Help produce and distribute our much-appreciated Voters Guide.  It comes out before each primary election and each general election. 

 

*Observe elected and appointed bodies in Omaha and Douglas County for the League.  Special training required.

 

*Serve on the board of the LWVGO to help determine policy and guide the League.  Some members also serve on the board for the League of Women Voters of Nebraska.

 

*Serve as trustees of the LWVGO's Education Fund, our 501-C3 arm.  Monies to the Ed Fund are used for our Voters Guide and events such as the recent Running and Winning program.

 

*Help to organize major events such as the Running and Winning program for high school girls, Pushing Past the Achievement Gap lecture, or candidate forums.

 

*Join in fundraising for the League of Women Voters and the LWV Education Fund.  Our annual Shrimp Feed is an example of this, where all members are asked to contribute time, desserts, or attendance.

 

*Stay abreast of issues and be prepared to contact elected representatives.  Attend the annual LWVNE Legislative Day at the state capitol each year.

 

Many of our members don't have time to participate in person, but applaud the work of the League and want to show their appreciation with their dues and contributions.  We are grateful!
