Communications/Speakers Bureau

Who We Are

The Communications Committee coordinates LWVMC’s outreach tools such as the website, newsletter and social media in order to inform our membership and the public about our activities. 

Contact: Carol Blackburn for meeting place and time.


What We Do

  • Our Social Media group has been fantastic, making sure our League activities, nationally and locally are highlighted. The team held a workshop on connecting with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram earlier in the year.
  • Our website has become a great tool for members to keep abreast of League activities and it’s an easy source for League policy positions, testimony, and our Fact Sheets. We are headlining regional and national League activities, letting members know when committees need some help and continue to reach a wide audience with extensive voting information.
  • A Speakers Bureau training session was held last fall for members interested in talking to groups about League topics ranging from Redistricting and the Census to the Electoral College and the League’s 100-year History. We had a long list of requests for speakers this spring and summer but unfortunately because of the coronavirus we won’t be able to fill many of them. Some speakers have used video meeting applications to reach groups, however.
