Topic/Consensus Meeting on Thursday, October 15th, 11:30 am – 1 pm

Join LWVN members to learn about and discuss the LWVUS study on the process for amending the US Constitution.  The question that will be discussed is:  what are the shared values and beliefs within the League – what consensus do we have – regarding the circumstances that might allow or compel the League to endorse a constitutional amendment or an Article V Convention?

This topic meeting will be at NewTV in the conference room.  Feel free to bring your lunch to enjoy along with the discussion.
