How is the League governed?
The Board of Directors of the League of Women Voters of Portland is elected by the membership at our annual Local Convention every May. These directors are volunteers and receive no pay. They are also a “working board.” Each board member takes on responsibility for leading (or helping to lead) a League committee and organizing projects.
What does the Board of Directors do?
The LWVPDX Board meets as a group at least ten times during the year and as often as once a month, with additional meetings as needed. In addition to their work as committee chairs and project leaders, board members have responsibility for assuring that the Portland League as a whole is governed according to League Principles and acts in accordance with our Bylaws, Policies and Advocacy Positions. They oversee the fiscal health of the League and participate in helping with League projects beyond the projects their committees undertake.
Who are these volunteers?
