Report from San Francisco -- Wish You'd Been There!
The LWV-CCCMF conference on January 17 and 18 was informative, inspiring and, at times, amusing. Your unworthy delegate kept wishing that all of our members could have shared in the idea-exchange that is so characteristic of LWV meetings--and in which we on our "rock" so rarely are able to participate.
Biggest and best news for the Honolulu League is that the National Board is well aware of our insular problems and plans to send live Leaguers down now and then so that we may have personal contact with the national committee. A committee member who has been assigned to Honolulu is a jewel among Leaguers. So save up your problems for her visit:
The speakers were illustrious and entertaining and covered the UN and world economic development in a manner familiar to LWV members. They were full of praise for the League and repeatedly emphasized that the League is one of the nation's most respected organizations, and in over 2,000 city halls, state capitols, and in Washington, the League is listened to.
Valuable discussion was provided by a panel of publicity purveyors--a columnist, a TV man, a minister and a PR man. Their main point was that if the League really makes significant news, the media will fall all over themselves to report it. Thus public relations is not just publicity, but the job of every member to make our program newsworthy.
Other nuggets of wisdom:
I could go on and on, and would love to over the phone. If you are curious about details to be gleaned from my full conference notebook, or about how other Leagues dealt with specific problems, please call me--39160. And thank you for sending me.
