Discussion Groups

Who We Are

Discussion Groups are monthly neighborhood gatherings of members and guests for the purpose of studying and discussing civic issues. Some discussions are purely educational to make members aware of key issues in Montgomery County. Other discussions require member consensus to develop League policy positions.

September—LWVUS Convention and Transformation Roadmap

In anticipation of the 100th anniversary of the League's founding, it has engaged in a process of self-reflection related to the continued relevance of the League. Challenges identified included: a membership that is not reflective of our communities, a lack of tools to more effectively carry out the mission of the organization, and our inability to demonstrate our collective impact as an organization. Calls and committee work led to the creation of a Transformation Roadmap, a 41-page analysis with recommended action steps for LWV moving forward. Please read the Fact Sheet and bring it with you to talk about the future of the League. Free. Everyone welcome.
