2017 Annual Meeting

LWVWI’s 2017 Annual Meeting will infuse civil discourse into what are often emotionally charged topics, giving Leaguers a chance to hear from a variety of viewpoints and discuss matters in a place where it is safe to respectfully disagree. The meeting will be hosted by LWV Greater Green Bay and will take place at the Hyatt Regency Green Bay on June 9-10. Ultimately delegates from across the state come together to adopt new program priorities, elect new leaders and adopt a budget to ensure success in the coming year.
