The April meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 2, 2013, at the University Club on Queen City Avenue. Prior to the meeting please join us for a very short power point orientation session that explains how the League of Women Voters works. This is essential knowledge for all members. A session will be offered at 11 am before our luncheon and at 1:15 after our speaker finishes, your choice to fit your schedule. It should last no more than 30 minutes. We felt this approach was better than scheduling a separate event for orientation.
