October Public Policy Luncheon
October 19, 2017 Lourie Center 11:45 AM
For details on reservations, see our event calendar.
This month we'll take a look at how to share the League's message using social media with LWVCA Webmaster Christina Goodwin.
Members will also brainstorm strategies for getting the vote out, and how to boost participation in the November 7 elections and beyond. Be ready to put your thinking caps on and come up with ways to encourage voter participation in the primaries. Separate tables will be set up to discuss ideas and strategies, and each will have a note keeper, time keeper, and reporter to share ideas at the end of the meeting.
