From the President

The changing of the guard provides a perfect opportunity for reflection on the past and forecasting the future. No looking back is complete in my mind without remembering the endless patience and tireless devotion to League development of Dee Lum. The diplomacy and maturity she has displayed are viewed with immense respect and working as part of her Board has been an educative experience much more valuable than any "how to" books or leadership training sessions.

I'm proud of the new Board and envision tremendous strides in the next two years. Our initial discussion of goals reveals high interest in:

  1. high LWV visibility in the community

  2. increased membership, and better use of existing talents

  3. better leadership development

  4. full use of existing LWV positions

  5. adventures in fund raising

  6. in depth study of international relations, especially as related to Hawaii

  7. enlargement of Capitol Tour, for Voter Service and as a fund raiser

  8. imaginative planning for election year 1974 activities

  9. publication of Citizens Planning Primer and accompanying slide show

  10. increase member knowledge of transit matters, and using National position in this area

  11. watchdogging development of the Neighborhood Commission

This is by no means a complete list of all the goals discussed, but does highlight Board thinking. I encourage each of you to respond to these and peruse the complete minutes of this meeting posted dm the office bulletin board.

These goals are realistic and exciting because the leadership and imagination exist to accomplish them. I feel strongly that the Board should hear a lot from members and urge you to call any of us with question and comments. Better still, attend Board meetings -- they are never closed-door sessions. Times and locations appear in the VOTER.

There appears on page three the names and portfolios of the Board of Directors, 1973-1974. A few positions remain unfilled. If you have suggestions please let me know. If there is any League job or committee you want to work on don't wait to be asked--volunteer.

I look forward to working and sharing ideas with each of you.
