Issues Discussion Meet Ups are where League action starts.
Members are encouraged to join a meet-up to explore the issues and make recommendations on positions. Once approved by the board and adopted by members, positions crafted from meet ups become the foundation for advocacy and action.
According to League history, meet ups (formerly known as “unit meetings”) got started during World War II in response to gasoline rationing when members found it easier to meet in neighborhood groups or “units.”
Meet-ups are still the foundation of the League. These days, meet up times and locations are organized around members’ schedules rather than neighborhood. There are meet ups at breakfast, at mid-day and after work. And, members are always welcome to set up a new meeting time and location that will be more convenient for their schedules. Meetings are held from September through May of each year.
What Happens at Issues Discussion Meet Ups?
Meet ups are both social and educational, with members arriving early to catch up. When not convening at a restaurant, members bring a bag lunch. One hour is dedicated to facilitated discussion on a selected topic.
