Adopting a Position

The League’s program consists of those governmental issues that the League has chosen for concerted study and action at the national, state or local level. Steps in adopting a position are:

  • Formal adoption (by members at an annual meeting or by state/national convention delegates) of an issue for study.
  • Member study and agreement on broad concepts.
  • Formulation of a position by the appropriate board of directors.
  • Action as directed by the board of directors.
  • Annual or biennial re-adoption of the position.
