President's Message

Committees, committees, committees! What would League do without them? Pretty much everything we do starts with or is referred to one committee or another. Right now we have nine standing committees. Our ambition is to have at least three members on every committee (that way, it is safe to volunteer and not worry about being made Chair).

The first item in this month's sermon is the adjacent article, Transportation Planning Survey. Please read it and then read the enclosed brochure and questionnaire. We know it is hard for lots of you to get to public meetings to make your opinions known. This week the meeting is coming to you. You can help shape the new Regional Transportation Plan.

Please note that a membership application is now part of each month's Aloha Voter. We have been told that it is not easy to join the League. Even though we are in the phone book, people still seem to have trouble locating us. So now, when someone asks you how to join, you have the answer!

Annual Program Planning Meeting December 17
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, December 17. That's our annual program planning meeting date, this year to take place at the Hale Koa hotel. This is the meeting where you get to put forth your ideas for programs for the next year. Are there issues important to you that we are not addressing?

It is also the time, in odd-numbered years, that we gear up for the next year's election. People will need to be registered. Should we plan on doing voters' guides? If so, for what issues/offices? Surely for Charter amendments, if any come out of the Charter Commission. But are we up to doing City Council races? Time to start making a wish list so we can talk about it in December.
