From the President - A Call to Annual Meeting!
A CALL TO ANNUAL MEETING: Last month's Voter gave an indication of how important the Annual Meeting is. We're electing an exciting new slate of officers and directors who will be "our leaders" for the next two years. COME AND MEET THEM.
We've been very active this past year, especially at City Hall. I'm sure you've noticed how frequently LWV is mentioned in the media. We're on KHVH's Viewpoint once a week. We've had more meetings, more speaking engagements; our committees have been busy. The office is always crowded -sometimes with 3 different meetings going on simultaneously. It's a stimulating environment and our activities have made an impact in the community.
What we really need is paid office staff -- someone to coordinate meetings, type testimony, write letters, answer the telephone, file things away properly. We can't afford that yet, even though Ruth Snyder did such a magnificent job as Vote Count Coordinator and chief money earner. Our increased budget may ease some of the burden, but I sincerely hope that someday League will be able to afford at least a half-time staffer.
I'm sorry this is so long, but I'd like the members to understand the background of the proposed budget figures before coming to Annual Meeting.
Since this is also my last "message" as president, I'd like to take this opportunity to say MAHALO -- to all of you -- for giving me two challenging and exciting years. It's a wonderful feeling to represent an organization so highly respected in the community. And whenever I felt inadequate (which was often), it was reassuring to know that the great fund of experience and knowledge of League members was available to me -only a telephone call away.
MAHALO AND ALOHA:
