Purpose and Uses
The LWVMA Membership Committee has developed a presentation for local League use. The presentation is available in PowerPoint and PDF formats. It includes a short video about the formation of the League in 1920, and is followed by slides that describe the League, its mission, and its activities. The presentation culminates in video clips of League members telling their reasons why they joined the League.
Suggested uses include new member events, annual and opening meetings, presentations to community groups, presentations to new or potential members, and more.
The PowerPoint files can be edited and customized to fit the audience and purpose. You should feel free to insert information and photos about your League activities, and perhaps add a slide about how to join.
Because of the embedded videos, the files are too large to store on the website. We have therefore put them into a Google Drive with a shared link which anyone with the link should be able to access.
The files, including a usage guide and a speaker’s script, can be downloaded by clicking on this link.
“Who Is the League” has separate component parts for more flexibility, and Leagues are encouraged to use the components that are appropriate for a given audience. Please look at the “LWVMA Who Is the League Usage Guide” for information on the files, instructions for downloading, and other information.
