League Leaders Lunch, March 7, 2015, Norwood

Fundraising and Voter Service Workshop

Saturday, March 7; 11 am-3 pm
Norwood Elks Lodge
152 Winslow Avenue, Norwood, MA

Thirty-six people attended the Lunch which had two focuses: fundraising and voter service. The goal was for every League to leave the Lunch with at least one new idea for fundraising and one for voter service.

The fundraising portion featured general fundraising principles and resources, followed by representatives from Leagues around the state presenting their successful fundraisers, and finishing with a roundtable discussion to share more fundraising successes.

For the voter service portion resources, empty chair debates, encouraging people to run for office, and ideas for LWVMA voter activities were the highlights.
