even though a really big tree limb falls blocking main entrance...some extra time at the beginning made up for by process of review of agenda earlier by LWVs via e-mail.

Order of business

     
     

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!!! 

    

Second project:  Engaging Your Community got into civics in the classroom.
