Big News!!

The updated Member Resources site is coming soon – very soon! The Forums site will be unavailable today, February 19th, as the content of both the Members Area and the Forums websites are merged into one, integrated Member Resources site. The whole process will take several hours with the site re-opening on Thursday, February 20, 2014.

  • Attached is a guide for state and local Leagues who are on Twitter. This document was distributed at National Council, June 2013.
  • We strongly urge all Leagues to have a robust online presence that reflects the current work you are doing in your communities and states. Your website, email communications (newsletters, action alerts, appeals, etc.), Facebook, Twitter, and other League-related social media sites should all incorporate both the LWV logo and name prominently at the top. Other pictures or graphics are allowed but are not to over shadow the League name and logo.
  • As a League leader, you occasionally face questions about the rules that govern Leagues — what Leagues can do and what they can’t. We often receive similar questions at the national office. In order to shed light on the subject, we asked a lawyer specializing in nonprofits for detailed guidance. We combined the advice he gave us with information from IRS publications and other sources to produce a series of frequently asked questions and answers (FAQ). We are including those FAQs that relate most directly to the work of membership and leadership development here.  Please feel free to share this document with other members of your board, including your treasurer. 

  • The League Forums are the online discussion group website for League members only. To access the Forums and join in the conversation, please follow the log in instructions.
  • This webinar will expand on the basic fundraising training from National Convention to provide an overview of the why’s, who’s, what’s, how’s and when’s of fundraising essentials for local Leagues. We’ll convince you to focus on the most promising source of funds for Leagues – individuals – and give you lots of ideas to ensure success!
  • Presented in partnership by the Membership and Leadership Development (MLD) program and the LWVUS Communications Team, this webinar discusses how you can build your League and the community through the use of Facebook and Twitter. Presented on August 28, 2012.
  • This powerpoint was presented in the Social Media Workshop at Convention in June 2012.
