SUMMARY OF LWVAC, MEMBERS’ MEETING, FEBRUARY 2, 2010
The purpose of the Members’ Meeting on February 2, 2010, was to review LWVUS position statements on five national issues: Apportionment, Citizen’s Right to vote, Campaign Finance, Energy, and Health Care. For each LWVUS position statement, teams of two members read the current position statements and the comments from LWVOhio; then they identified the Stakeholders, the Primary Stakeholders and the Key Success Factors for the process embodying the issue. Then each team rated how well the current national position statement fulfills the Key Success Factors, redrafted the LWVUS position statement and reported their deliberations to the whole group.
The LWVAC teams were:
Tim Foran and Ann Fox Apportionment
Mary Lee Powell and Katherine Jellison Campaign Finance
Chris Knisely and Elaine Mather Health Care
Carol Patterson and Lois Whealey Apportionment.
