Local Program Making
The Board of the League of Women Voters of Honolulu recommends adoption of the following program at the annual meeting:
The above program items are essentially continued program items although, there has been a rewording of the planning study on the advice of the Planning Study chairman and there has been a rephrasing of the Diamond Head Support position which brings it more closely in line with the 1967 consensus on this issue. There is no change on the wording of the Charter position.
Many ether excellent program items have been put forth by League members for inclusion in the 1972-73 local program. However, after careful consideration of the total scope of our local League including our Voters' Service program, the woman power available, and the national criteria for selecting program the Board has decided to recommend that the Honolulu League drop on support position and add no new study items. The non-recommended program items are:
At our annual meeting in March, the recommended items on our proposed local program must be voted-on and approved by our membership. At this time, members should be prepared to express their thoughts on our local program and may modify the Board recommended program. Subjects not recommended by the Board may also be considered by members at our annual meeting. Members who wish to bring up for consideration any of the non-recommended items listed above for consideration by the annual meeting should contact Claudia Patil, Vice-President before the date of the annual meeting. The specific procedure which must be followed is:
In addition, at the annual meeting members may amend any issue being considered provided that the intent is not changed or the scope enlarged. This can be done during the consideration of the program items at the meeting.
The Board hopes that every member will carefully consider the proposed local program and will take an active part in the discussion of our program at the meeting. The local League program should be an accurate reflection of the interest and commitment of League members to problems of local concern.
In selecting our local program, it is important to remember the League criteria for selecting program which are that the issue must be one on which governmental action is needed and it must fall within the principles of the League of Women Voters. However, there are many important issues which meet these criteria which we cannot undertake as part of our program because of the limitations on our own resources of womanpower. How do we make these hard, choices? Perhaps the following questions from our National Board will be useful in your thinking of our own local program:
