How Does The League Select Issues for Emphasis?

How Does The League Select Issues for Emphasis?

In League, Program means the issues that we choose for concerted study, education, and action at local, state, and national levels. Program can include both education and action
The Program Planning process is part of what makes the League a grassroots organization; each League member has the opportunity to influence the selection of issues where the local, state, and national League will focus time, talent, and money.

Every two years, members of local Leagues engage in Program Planning. Based on the results, the Board of Directors makes recommendations to the biennial convention delegates about the program to be adopted for the coming two year period.
