National and State Program Planning

League program is a core component of the League’s mission: it is a three-part process comprised of program planning, study and consensus, and advocacy. Because the League of Women Voters is a grassroots organization, its positions at all levels are based on members’ study and consensus.

Every two years, in alternating years, local leagues are invited to participate in the LWVUS (even years) or LWVMA (odd years) program planning process by reviewing existing LWVUS or LWVMA positions and making recommendations for League program for the next two years.  Members then vote at the respective convention to adopt new positions.
