• To participate in the update of the LWVNYS position on a (NYS) Constitutional Convention (for details see https://my.lwv.org/new-york-state/constitutional-convention-update);
• To discuss LWV-RMA positions and possible local studies in preparation for our local Annual Meeting in June;
• To add our voices to those of other local leagues in evaluating current LWVUS positions and recommending studies for the next biennium which will be voted on at the LWVUS Convention in June.

We invite all members to join us. We need to hear from seasoned members as well as new members. Suggestions for possible local studies at last year’s Program Planning meeting led to some of this year’s forums.

We suggest that you review the current League positions in advance, but if you do not have the time, we still welcome your input.

Our local positions can be found at http://www.lwv-ma.org/POSITIONS%20%20LOCAL%20LEAGUE.pdf.
LWVUS positions can be found at https://www.lwv.org/sites/default/files/2019-04/LWV%202018-20%20 Impact%20on%20Issues.pdf.

A summary is posted at http://www.lwv-rma.org/LWVUS%20 Position%20Summary%202018-2020.pdf. You can also click on Links and Positions on our website (the last item on the menu to the left).

We look forward to seeing you on February 8. If you have a suggestion for a local study and cannot attend the meeting, please send an email to info@lwv-rma.org with your idea and it will be brought up at the meeting. If you can attend, please register at 262-3730 or online now.
Judy Weinstein, Government Committee chair
