In previous years, the Portland League distributed an annual report to the members attending the Annual Business Meeting and Local Convention. The Annual Convention Report covers information about the decisions to be made at the Membership Business Meeting and a review of the League’s activities for the year. Because the 2020 business meeting was a virtual one, the 2019-20 annual report was published after the meeting. You can read it here.
A Virtual Online Meeting
Every year, for as long as anyone can remember, the League of Women Voters of Portland has held its annual membership business meeting as part of our Local Convention. This year, we cannot hold an in-person Local Convention or business meeting. But we still have some business to do.
Before June, LWVPDX members must elect the 2020-21 Board, pass the 2020-21 budget and approve the 2020-21 League Program. So we will hold a business meeting on Tuesday May 12 from 5:30 to 6:30 pm by teleconferencing with Zoom.
Information about the Meeting
At the beginning of April, all current LWVPDX members were mailed the following documents. These give details about the meeting and the business on which members must vote.
