In January, a winter newsletter was mailed to all League members on Kauai and to all presidents statewide. At the most recent board meeting, on January 29, two new directors were appointed: Lisa Ellen Smith and Esther Solomon. I am encouraging these board members to attend the April 28 State Convention on Oahu.

Planning has begun for our Annual meeting/election to be held April 21, 2007. The draft 2007 slate includes: President: Carol Bain; Vice President Althea McCleery; Secretary: Mary Stone; Treasurer: open. Elected Directors: Linda Harmon, Lisa Ellen Smith, Esther Solomon. Nominations committee: tba.

Sunshine week is
March 11 - 17, 2007.

Executive Director Sharon Ferguson-Quick of the State Commission on the Status of Women telephoned to discuss the Ready to Run workshops scheduled for next summer. She is facing budget and funding challenges. She said women make up only 31% of the Hawaii state legislature. League members on Kauai will work together with the Commission on this project. Sharon can be reached by phone at: (808) 586-5757, or by Fax at: (808) 586-5756.

Carol Bain
