LWVNOC Policies

LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS NORTH ORANGE COUNTY POLICY

The purpose of the League of Women Voters is to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation of citizens in government. The League of Women Voters does not support or oppose any political party or candidate. It is political in that it takes positions on selected governmental issues after member study and agreement.

Because of the high profile of these positions, The President(s) and Voters Service Director(s) may not take an active, visible role in a campaign for a political candidate or for a non-League issue or position. They should refrain from all non-League political activity during their term in office. They may attend informational meetings only.

All board members shall inform the Executive committee of any contemplated individual political activity. Board members may not identify themselves as League members in publicly expressing an opinion that is in opposition to a League position. They may "speak for the League" only with the approval of the Executive Committee.

There are no restrictions on board members because of political activity by members of their families.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST POLICY

The Board is directed to review and resolve any possible conflict of interest issues that may arise in dealing with paid employment, service on other boards, personal lobbying, or acceptance of goods or services from those whose positions are contrary to League positions. Board members must notify the Executive Committee regarding any actual or perceived conflict.
