Effective League activity in a community relies on an understanding of how local government works. A League Observer is the eyes and ears of the League, learning how government works and about issues that are, or may become, items for local study and action. Consistent League presence at these meetings also adds to the League’s visibility and credibility.
We are looking for volunteers to observe City Council committee meetings. Many people follow full City Council meetings, however fewer follow the committees where the “work” really takes place. Being an LWVN Observer, is an informative and educational opportunity which is much easier today with the meetings taking place by Zoom. So how do you become an LWVN Observer:
- Familiarize yourself with the various City Council committees and select the one(s) that interest you the most
- Use this link to find a list of current City Council committee meetings, the agenda, and Zoom access information.
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. to let us know of your interest and we will provide assistance and information to get you started.
- Then sit back, dial into the meeting, listen, learn, and take notes…what could be more educational and easier!
