Discussion number one presenters below left, second discussion "Engaging
Your Community" with request from Secretary of the State's Offices:
What about the connection between Federal rules and CT rules and S.E.E.C. independence?
The explanation: If you know the facts in detail, you can't ignore
them. And the more pressure journalists and League members apply,
the more likely we are to get results!
Young LWV member (journalist) leads the way!
The League of Women Voters of Connecticut new Board member (Director of
Social Policy, below) illustrates the points made with examples.
Presentation very well received!!!
