President's Message

OK, folks! Summer's over. The mainland guests have gone home. The kids are back in school. It's time to get down to some serious, thought-provoking activities -- like League!

Your Board and committees have put together a stimulating agenda for the coming year. So please get out your date book, turn to the calendar in this Voter and make note of some League events.

National Security is the topic for our kick-off membership meeting for the Action-Packed Politics campaign this fall. We are inviting the UH Women's Campus Club and the Newcomers' Club along with the Awa Lau Wahine Officers' Wives at Hickam and the Kaneohe Officers' Wives, to join us in discussing this vital issue. Of course, this September

24th meeting will be for consensus, too, so I ask you to study the attached questions before coming to the meeting. The problems and the questionnaire are complex and require some careful thought. Our committee, chaired by Dottie Gullicksen, has worked very hard to present background information to us at three general meetings and with articles in the Voter. I'd like them to know we greatly appreciate their efforts.

A legislative workshop and luncheon, the second event for the APP campaign, has been planned by LWV-Hawaii for October 29. We will be given an insider's view of lobbying and some pointers on how to be more effective lobbyists ourselves. This workshop will be open to the public, as are all League meetings, but we will extend special invitations to AAUW, Junior League, and auxiliary groups interested in government.

Finally, a third event to mark on your calendar is our annual fundraiser. This year we are buying out the house one evening for the HCT production of The Dining Room, a comedy currently running on Broadway. Your Board felt that a play would be something that would appeal to non-members because they would "get something for their money." In the past, many of our fundraisers have been almost exclusively supported by members. But that need not be, for League offers a needed service to the community. The community, in turn, should be given the opportunity to support League in its public work. The League of Women Voters has a good reputation in Honolulu, and we should not be reticent about asking people to help us.

Hope to see you all at the September 24th consensus meeting.


Arlene Woo
