First Call to Convention 2013

Mark your calendars — May 4 and 5, 2013 – and plan to come to Columbia for the 61st State Convention.

Convention is when we all participate in the planning of the League of Women Voters of Missouri for the next two years. Now is the time to start thinking about the positions on which you want the League to take action in the next two years. Be sure to take part in your local League’s program planning process in preparation for this.

In addition to the business of convention, there will be interesting speakers, our bi-annual League awards, delicious meals, and plenty of time to get to know Leaguers from across the state.

Your suggestions for making this a great convention are welcome!
