Board or Council
The Board or Council is the administrative and policy-making arm of the League. It provides direction and leadership in carrying out members’ decisions and is ultimately responsible for all plans and activities of committees, study groups and ad hoc groups. Once the Board or Council approves a study, project or program in broad outline, the responsible Director and/or Committee determines the details and, with regular progress reports to the Board or Council, sees that the plan is carried out.
Group Leader: Mary Foster. The book group focuses on the current American political scene, as well as the historical events and figures which contributed to it. The book group gives League members an opportunity to discuss political concepts in a nonpartisan manner, to educate themselves on current developments relevant to League positions and concerns, and to share social time with each other.
Civics Education Committee
Chair: Bonnie Bless-Boenish. The Civic Education Committee is focusing on youth and young voters. We organize two voter registration events per year in conjunction with local Back-To-School Events. We also promote and help to implement the Kids Voting USA program, which includes Kids Voting ballots and voting prep and school visits. New in 2022-23 was the Mock Trial Club at Sequim High School. We also helped to send two high school students to be Legislative Pages. Through a state civics ed grant, we purchased civics picture books and kits with copies of the League textbook, the State We're In: Washington which are available for check out at NOLS.
Communications Committee
Chair: T Lyn. The Communications Committee maintains the Club Express Association Management System; maintains the LWVCLA website; assists Board members and chairs with writing news releases and other public announcements; produces, edits, and distributes the League's bi-monthly digital newsletter; produces the League's annual digital and print They Represent You (TRY) brochure; posts regularly on the Leagues social media outlets; and designs, prints, and distributes flyers, posters, ads, and other digital and print media throughout the year to promote and inform the community about League activities.
Diversity*Equity*Inclusion (DEI) Committee
Chair: Kelly Dyer. The DEI Committee's focus is to apply a "DEI Lens' to the local League's processes, activities, outreach, and communications to insure that there are no barriers to full participation in the League on the basis of gender, gender identity, ethnicity, race, native or indigenous origin, age, generation, sexual orientation, culture, religion, belief system, marital status, parental status, socioeconomic status, language, accent, ability status, mental health, educational level or background, geography, nationality, work style, work experience, job role function, thinking style, personality type, physical appearance, political perspective or affiliation and/or any other characteristic that can be identified as recognizing or illustrating diversity.
