The 2021 LWVMA Convention “Expanding the Table: Making Democracy Work for Everyone” will be held Saturday, June 26 on Zoom. Convention brings local League delegates together to hear distinguished speakers, approve program for the next biennium, elect a new board of directors, approve the budget, and network with leaders from across the state.

All LWV members are welcome to attend Convention, but only delegates can vote. We hope every League will send delegates to Convention. The bylaws specify the number of delegates based on each League’s Feb. 1, 2021 membership total. The local League delegate count information sheet is available here. Delegate registration and information on delegate sharing will be coming soon.
Local League Gifts to LWVMA
Traditionally, local Leagues make donations to LWVMA at Convention. Please consider making a donation, perhaps in honor or in memory of a special person in your League. During budget preparation, your board and budget committee should discuss the possibility of donating to the state League. A local League gift form is available here.
Since we are meeting virtually this year, all of our convention materials will be electronic only. Please see our list of pre-convention materials here. In mid-June, we will put out an electronic version of the Convention Workbook.
