President's Greeting

Amanda Windsor and I, your Co-Presidents, welcome every one of you to the new League year 2014-2015. This year we will work with Krista Miller, Vice-President, and Anne Hartline, Past President, as a leadership team to make this an exciting and productive year.

Your Board had a very constructive retreat in early August, reviewing and readopting policies and setting up the calendar for the year. We also appointed two new Board members, Kathy Johanson and Patricia-Anne WinterSun, for one year terms, as is the privilege of the Co-Presidents. Board members have taken on specific jobs for the year––you will hear from them at the Fall Kick-Off Brunch on Sept 13, 2014.

We’re planning a new study! The first one in several years, it will center around Civic Engagement. Addressing this topic, our speaker for the Kick-Off Brunch will be Carolyn Crnich who has been an elected official in Humboldt County for many years. She is retiring as County Clerk, and has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the area of civic engagement in our community. Don’t miss this exciting and informative event!

We also welcome a new President of the League of Women Voters of California and the League of Women Voters of California Education Fund. Helen Hutchison of Oakland was appointed to serve a one-year term to fight for voting rights, responsible public policy, and to lead the charge in providing accessible, nonpartisan election information to all Californians. She said, “I am thrilled to lead our grassroots members and supporters in the fight for voting rights and will remain steadfast in our commitment to providing nonpartisan election information for California's diverse population. We will continue to work hard for smart and responsible public policy to make our Golden State a fair and vibrant place for us all.”

Our local League is also committed to these same principles. We have a full agenda for 2014-2015, including a busy election season coming up, review of several of our positions, and a new study. There will be many ways for everyone to contribute and be involved, in both Voter Service and Action and Advocacy. Let’s all work together to make 2014-2015 a great year for the League of Women Voters of Humboldt County Ciao!
