Study & Action
Members of local Leagues come together to discuss issues of statewide interest and current or potential League concerns. They recommend to their local League boards the issues for study and action. Local League boards consolidate the members’ recommendations and decide which issues and positions have the most support, are most timely and are most appropriate for League activity. They then send their recommendations to the board of the League of Women Voters of Florida (LWVFL). The State Board weighs the various recommendations from the local Leagues and decides which issues will become part of the state program that it will recommend to the state biennial convention (composed of local League delegates) for adoption.
Bylaws are the legally binding rules by which the organization is governed. They set forth the structure of the organization and guide the Board of Directors (“Board”) in the conduct of its business. In essence, bylaws are the operating manual for a nonprofit. The League of Women Voters of Florida is made up of two separate entities: Our educational arm: League of Women Voters of Florida Education Fund (501c3) and our advocacy arm: League of Women Voters of Florida Fund (501c4).
