President's Message

Happy New Year! Hope your holidays were happy.

Before anything else, I want to thank all of you who worked so hard the last week of November and the first week of December counting votes. Our coordinators, Claire Gregorcyk, Nan Luter, Arlene Ellis, and Helen Griffin, and all of you members who assisted may have been too efficient for League, though. We made about $1400 but had expected to make more because we thought you'd take longer to count the votes. You people are so experienced, we're considering raising our rates.

January is a busy time for League for we must begin thinking ahead for our next year. The budget committee will be meeting early this month, and the nominating commit-tee will be trying to find people interested in running for president, vice-president, secretary, and two or three directors. If you have suggestions, please contact Marilyn Bowman about the budget and Dee Lum regarding possible officers.

We must also begin our program planning for the coming year. As I mentioned in the last VOTER, at our January 28 meeting, we will discuss program along with long-range plans for LWV. I encourage you to attend this meeting because what we decide then basically determines what we do in 1984. So while this subject may not be as provocative as hazardous waste or energy, it is important. And besides, Pat Shutt promises that it will be fun!

Our National Security Committee has planned some informational meetings which fit right into the electronic age. Hopefully, you will make a point of attending one or more of these meetings in February so that your decisions at consensus time (February 25) I will be easier than last time.

Finally, if you're considering New Year's resolutions, be sure to include League. We need you


Arlene Woo
