President's Message

This month is a busy one for members as the Voter Service projects come to a head. Honolulu members serve State's efforts by working on the Board of Education information project as well as our own Bishop Museum and debate efforts.

Each offers members a variety of jobs by which participation is a contribution to League as well as the community.

Our well deserved election/vote count experiences will begin; soon and they, too, offer members a chance to help League as well as the organization which hires us. Voter Service and Vote Count are in addition of course to our membership meetings and the necessary administrative activities behind them all.

Your Board guides each area based on program plans and budget decisions made at the annual meetings. The process continues throughout the year; we are barely starting Fall Events and signs are appearing that aim our thoughts toward possible proposals for next annual meeting's decisions

One reflection of how discussions and plans in one area lead to plans in another is the study-discussion group proposal coming from our active National Security study committee. As the third phase of the study enters at a slower pace than the previous phases, the committee has the "luxury" of opening their discussions to a wider membership. This opportunity will bring back the previously used discussion group process that many League members have missed with our recent emphasis on general membership-speaker type meetings.

Watch your VOTER for your chance to participate in these discussions.

Mahalo to Mary Ellen and Bob Reed for typing and organizing the 1984 edition of the Membership Roster. It is now your job to keep your copy current; note in it each month the updated membership listings that are found within your Aloha Voter. It will be doubly important for action calls, vote counter calls and meeting calls that might come in '84-'85.

Please let the office know if you have a change in address or phone number. You will not receive bulk-mailed information if it is misdirected -- that means your Voter and other total-membership mail!
