What's in a Name? Help Us Name the Members Site!We have taken the first steps toward a new, dynamic members’ website resource built just for League members and Leaders! 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.

| Gretchen KnellThe League of Women Voters’ logo, like our name, is our identity. It conveys the full collective power of the LWV mission to the public, our members and supporters. It is very important to maintain the integrity and consistency of our trademarked name and logo. Over the years we have seen attempts to capitalize on the League’s brand through deceptive alterations of our name and/or logo by other organizations. The name and logo have been legally trademarked by LWVUS and are owned by LWVUS on behalf of all the state and local groups who are part of our organization. Hence, LWVUS is responsible for protecting our brand and, in turn, those who are part of our family need to use it appropriately. We have established these guidelines in order to maintain the integrity of and reinforce our identity.
| Gretchen KnellWe 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.

Add your League's website to the League of Women Voters Online network. All you need to do is add one line of code to your website and the widget handles the rest.
