Help Your Neighbors Become Educated and Active Citizens
The St. Paul LWV is currently recruiting Board members to fill new terms on its Board for the 2018-19 League year (June 1-May 31). Because we are a volunteer-run organization, our board members lead and participate in various committees to plan and coordinate our events and initiatives. Board members are given the flexibility to choose the committees and activities that interest them the most, while also considering what work needs to be done to help the League reach its goals. The upcoming Board term will be an exciting one—not only is the League approaching its 100th year anniversary in 2020 but the St. Paul League will be hosting the LWVMN (State League) convention in 2019. There is no better time to join!
Qualifications: We seek individuals (of all genders) from the St. Paul area who are passionate about helping Saint Paul citizens make democracy work. Board members must commit to a one- or two-year term as well as to attending the 2-hour Board meetings held monthly except in July and December. Board members must also commit to working on a particular project (membership, voter service, etc.). The choice usually is negotiable. If you are interested in joining the Board in a well-defined role, we’re looking for a Board member to fill the Secretary position for the coming year. This role can be split between two Board members, if desired. Previous Board experience is not required.
