A Message From Our President

Dear LWVNOC Members:

It is a privilege and an honor to be your current President. Throughout my years of being involved with League, I have been able to get to know many of our most dynamic members and supporters. I have observed veteran members reach out to newer members to make them feel welcome and an integral part of the organization. We all share a common goal to be of service to our communities and to share our experiences and practices in ways that can educate the public.

Our country constantly faces many challenges today and will continue into the future. You have chosen four areas of concern that we will focus on in the next two years. Voting Rights, Education, Homelessness and Housing and Civil Discourse. Strategic Planning will give us direction on how to make a positive impact in those areas and we welcome your input.

LWVNOC greatest strength is its members and we need to remain diligent with our efforts. Get involved by joining a team, attending meetings and recruiting new members. Thank you for everything you do for League and I look forward to working with you in the coming years.

Frann Shermet, President, LWVNOC
