Message from the President...
Jerry Hess from State, Pat Shutt from Ed Fund, Gerry Wojno from Kauai, and I spent a minimum of 8 hours every day at meetings, caucuses and program workshops. fie learned that membership is a problem down the line and that Honolulu can be proud of our 25% growth last year. Everyone, including National, has money worries and our ability to raise funds is the envy of other leagues. All agreed program was very important but the focus should be state and local. I left Cincinnati, still cold, but comforted because our problems are not unique and proud because we do some things better.
CONVENTION '78: In program, budget, bylaws and action decisions:
A more complete summary of what happened will appear in your next NATIONAL VOTER.
As I said before, Convention was stimulating, exhausting and also inspiring. Honolulu seems a million miles away from the National Board in Washington even though excellent publications regularly pour into our office and we bask in the reflection of the reputation League has earned. It was exciting to feel a part of such an influential and important organization. For the first time I felt what I had been saying in talks to various groups: LWVUS is all of us; we are LWV of Honolulu, Hawaii, and the US.
* The Honolulu Board voted unanimously to pay our, budgeted $10 PMP for 78-79. 4e will send a letter with cur June payment and hope this will inspire other Leagues across the country to do likewise.
