Re:      SCHIP Reauthorization

The League of Women Voters urges you to support reauthorization of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) when it comes to the House floor for a vote.  In the years since Congress first passed SCHIP, the program has provided access to health care coverage to six million low-income children.  However, there are still over nine million children who remain uninsured.

How can you be sure that your League will be in good hands when you go off board? If you are truly a good leader then you should be prepared!

Create a succession plan that proactively deals with all the things you (or the board) are scared might happen when you leave.

Dear League Friends,

Here a great idea for a last minute gift!

Wishing you great joy this holiday season and success with every endeavor.

Have you ever found yourself in the middle of this cycle?

When colder weather strikes, heating bills start to climb. Not only is that hard on the checkbook; it also means increased greenhouse gas emissions. What is a thrifty, ecologically-minded person to do? 

When pondering marketing, you may think “How can I possibly afford to market the League? We can barely afford the postage we need.”

Or maybe you can afford some marketing and advertising, but you’re looking for the best use of your limited resources when getting and keeping members. Whatever your League situation, you have many inexpensive marketing tools available.

This election season has been an exciting time for local Leagues! Once this part of the year is over, I know your League has planned many projects for '08 and '09. Some of these may include advocacy efforts, educational forums, and round table discussions with the community, fundraising dinners, and other energetic opportunities to excite members and gain visibility to attract new members.

Coal – Is It:

The great hope?
It is cheap and readily available in many parts of the world; it can reduce oil imports and fuel economies in developing countries.
