Linking to Non-League Websites

1.   On Take Action/advocacy pages, the LWVUS website may link to websites of organizations, coalitions and events that meet these criteria, as determined by appropriate League staff:

•     national in scope
•     in general agreement with LWVUS positions and strategies
•     government or nongovernment entities that provide balanced background information

Leaders’ Update

The Leaders’ Update shall include only those materials pertaining directly to the ongoing work and activities of the LWVUS and the LWVEF. 

State and local Leagues and League networks that wish to share information with other Leagues are encouraged to do so through lists established for that purpose.

 

Guidelines for LWVUS/LWUEF Sponsored Online Discussion Lists

The purpose of an LWVUS/LWVEF-sponsored discussion list is to promote the mission and goals of the League by facilitating the exchange of information among members and among the levels of League. In deciding whether or not to establish a list, the board shall consider the following criteria:

Campaign Policies for Candidates for LWVUS Office

The purpose of these policies is to ensure that campaigns for LWVUS office are conducted in a fair and open manner and to enable the membership to make informed decisions about the leadership of the LWVUS.

A.  Persons Covered by These Policies

A.1.  All candidates for LWVUS office are subject to the provisions of these Campaign Policies. 

Bylaws Committee

Composition  

The Bylaws Committee shall consist of five members, of whom three shall not be members of the national board.  The LWV President shall make the appointments at least six months prior to Convention.  Members will serve until the close of the next biennial Convention.

Duties

Attendance at LWVUS Conventions/Councils

Any person who holds an elected or appointed position in the LWVUS (including members of the board, the nominating, budget, bylaws and campaign oversight committees and the UN observer and alternate observer) is presumed to be acting in that capacity while attending convention and/or council.  As such, these individuals may not publicly express disagreement with the board-recommended program, budget or bylaws amendments.

Withdrawal of Recognition

In extraordinary circumstances, when a state League does not assume its responsibility to request that the LWVUS board withdraw recognition from a local League for recurring failure to fulfill the requirements adopted by the LWVUS convention, the LWVUS board may itself initiate the procedure to withdraw recognition from the local League.
