LWV Wichita Metro Events

One important way every citizen can become involved with democracy is to join LWV Wichita-Metro at our local events. You’ll learn about current issues affecting our community and have the chance to meet new people, including your elected representatives at select events. See calendar below for upcoming events!

2021 Annual Meeting

Every year we have a meeting where our members vote on a proposed budget for the coming 12 months, a slate of board positions, etc. and then we do fun things like honoring our Citizen of the Year. It’s a great way to cap the previous 12 months and form a vision of how the next year will be.

Last year was a bit of a bust. This year we’re on top of our video conferencing game and we’re ready to take full advantage of it! 💪

We would LOVE for members AND non-members to join us for the public portion of our annual meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, May 24th. 🤩 The livestream will pop up at bit.ly/LWVyoutube. We will also livestream on our Facebook page at fb.com/League.Of.Women.Voters.Wichita

The public meeting will include:
⭐ DEI Moment of Focus
⭐ Greetings from LWVUS CEO Virginia Kase
⭐ Presentation of our scholarship winners
⭐ Recognition followed by a keynote address from the League of Women Voters Wichita – Metro’s Citizen of the Year, Sedgwick County Health Director Adrienne Byrne

Please note that the members-only portion of our Annual Meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. and held on Zoom. All members should have received an email from wichitametrolwv@gmail.com on April 24th with attachments & the Zoom link.
