How are League positions developed?
Before taking a position on an issue, League members study the issue carefully. After studying the issues from all viewpoints and discussing the study’s results, members must come to consensus before adopting an official Position Statement. Members re-visit position statements annually to ensure they are current. The Portland League takes positions on local issues, and can also act based on positions the state and national Leagues have taken.
All League positions must conform with the national League Principles
