May/Summer 2015 Unit Meetings

Emily Davis News, News and Updates


Thank you for joining the LWVMT’s Unit Meetings this past year. Your input is what makes these meetings successful.

Oklahoma League members want their organization to take a more active role as an advocacy organization. To accomplish this goal, the LWVOK began a 2014-2015 study titled: “Renewing our commitment to Action” – a study of its public policy positions.

The Tulsa league joined the Oklahoma League’s study. Our members spent 4 months reviewing Oklahoma’s “Program for Action” book and making recommendations to bring its policies up to date. Twenty members attended January’s consensus meeting. Our final report to the LWVOK contained recommendations for revision or update to all twenty-one current state policy positions.

Since January, Tulsa’s Unit Meetings have met regularly on a monthly basis. Discussion focused on various topics before the state legislature. The Program Committee will give its Annual Report at the LWVMT’s meeting on June 2. We hope to see you there.

May and Summer Unit Meetings:

The members of each Tulsa Unit will decide if they are going to meet in May and during the summer months. The topics for discussion will be decided by the members of each unit. If you have a question or want more information, please email or phone the Tulsa League office: [email protected], 918-747-7933.
