The League's Board meeting on March 8 was exceptionally energetic. We've expanded our meetings to two hours to allow time to cover a wide variety of topics and actions. Here are just a few:
- The Board appointed President V-Anne Chernock and Director Suki Sennett as delegates to the League's Regional Biennial Council, to be held in Sausalito on April 29. Other League members may attend as non-voting delegates.
- The Board reviewed the draft budget for 2017-18, discussed recommendations to be presented to the membership at our June 5 annual meeting, and approved a $1,000 donation to Voter's Edge California.
- The Board received an invitation to start a dialogue with Common Cause about possible collaborations. League members who wish to comment or participate in this effort may contact President Chernock for more information.
- The Board heard another (monthly) in-depth report from Director John Eells about national voting laws. This month's report was largely based on an article by the Brennan Center for Justice. It's worth perusing!
