Unit Meetings are where League action starts.

Members are encouraged to join a unit to explore the issues and make recommendations on positions. Once approved by the board and adopted  by members, positions crafted from unit meetings become the foundation for advocacy and action.

According to League history, 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.”

Unit meetings are still the foundation of the League. These days, unit meeting times and locations are organized around members’ schedules rather than neighborhood. There are unit meetings at breakfast, at midday 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.

League of Women Voters Unit Meetings are made up of four to 15 people who want to discuss a study or become educated on a current topic.  

A study is done by local members, and can be a local, state or national topic. When a study or topic is discussed, both pros and cons, and a look at both sides of a subject are included.

Unit meetings are the “grassroots” of the League of Women Voters. They are where differing opinions are welcome and where consensus results in wording to which our members can agree.
