The key to a healthy, open and trusted government is public participation. Use this letter to the editor template to help generate interest in this topic and gain visibility in your League this July 4th.
Local Leagues across the country have been working to build their membership and have been using innovative strategies to successfully foster growth. LWVUS talked to these leagues to learn how they have recruited new members and leaders so effectively. Our fifth League highlight focuses on the LWV of Oberlin, Ohio.

This document is designed to help you take the best practices and concepts introduced at National Council and put them into practice. Each state League was asked to come to Council with an idea for an integrated state campaign for the coming League year through the 2014 elections. Throughout the weekend, you will be given opportunities to complete this worksheet to formulate or enhance a plan of action for implementing it.
Facebook is a way to communicate with our members and the public at large. Through a Facebook page, you can engage the public to becoming more involved with your League, and move them up the ladder of engagement. In addition to engaging new fans, more and more of our traditional membership is also tuning in to social media channels, like Facebook (Forbes, May 2013).
Like Facebook, Twitter is a great way to engage with the public and our members. And, it is a good way to interact with the media, key opinion leaders and our organizational partners. Twitter differs from Facebook in some important ways, most notably, the length of posts and the continuous flow of information. It is important to understand how quickly Twitter moves. Unlike Facebook, tweets are not weighted based on interactions; they stream in real time, and can be pushed down a user’s feed quickly. Twitter’s hallmark is that posts are limited to 140 characters.
