Local Presidents can now register delegates to LWVMO’s 65th State Convention. The virtual convention will begin at 9 am on Saturday, May 15, with pre-convention events on the preceding Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Observers can register here.
The convention speaker will be Dr. Deborah Turner, President of LWVUS. She served on the LWVUS National Board from 2016-present. She served as vice president of LWV Iowa from 2011–2015 and President of LWV Des Moines Metropolitan from 2010–2015. She obtained her JD from Drake University and her MD from University of Iowa. She has been a Gynecologic Oncologist for 30 years. Deborah served on the Board Regents for the State of Iowa (1999-2006), and was entered into the Iowa Women’s Hall of Fame in 2013. She lives in Nebraska and has two grown children – a son and a niece. She says, “I believe no child should be restrained by the circumstances of their birth. The League, through our leadership in the democracy space, can make this dream a reality.”
