The new and improved site – it deserves a good name! Unlike Shakespeare, we don’t think this particular rose will smell as sweet with just any name. So, come share your ideas in the “What’s in a Name?” game.

| LWVLeague Basics contains essential policy and organizational information applicable to every local and state League. League Basics offers advice, guidelines and more detailed information to help leaders develop specific methods of operation to enable a League to accomplish its goals.
The Young People Task Force (YPTF) was created as a collaborative effort between LWVUS President Elisabeth MacNamara and LWVUS staff in response to Leagues’ desire to attract the next generation of League leaders.
The LWVUS YPTF mission is to seek ways to increase the LWV long-term membership sustainability by recruiting the next generation of League members.
The YPTF was created with these three distinct goals in mind:
- Gathering information about why young people join the League of Women Voters
- Creating a tool-kit for local Leagues to directly recruit and engage young professionals in their communities
- Creating a community for young professional League members (and utilizing this community to help move the League into the 21st century)
On behalf of the LWVUS Board and staff, I would like to thank you for your dedication and commitment in furthering the mission and ideals of the League of Women Voters by serving as a League leader. We are pleased to share with you several tools to assist you in your leadership role, and we hope that you will share these with other leaders in your League. While the information in the President's Packet is a few years out of date, we continue to add resources to the LWVUS website.

With each level of League focused on its own sphere of influence – but working collaboratively for the common good – the League of Women Voters demonstrates its unique power to combine this broad range of skills and resources to “Make Democracy Work” for all Americans! LWVUS plays an important part – and so do all of you! PMP covers 23% of the cost programs in the LWVUS/LWVEF budget.
