Advocacy Process


The League takes “action” on an issue or advocate for a cause when there is an existing “League position” that supports the issue or speaks to the cause. In the League, ACTION means advocating or lobbying for an issue on which the respective League (local, state, regional or national level) has a position.

In the League, a position is a statement of the League’s point of view on an issue, arrived at through member study and agreement (consensus or concurrence) and approved by the League board, which is used as a basis for League action.

Studies (whether national, state, or local) are a defined process during which we undertake a thorough pursuit of facts and details and come to consensus on a policy. That consensus becomes our position.

If members have not studied or have not come to consensus/concurrence on an issue, the League has no position and therefore cannot take action.

During the Program Planning process each League member has the opportunity to influence the selection of issues that the League will on.

The Program Planning process is part of what makes the League a grassroots organization—each League member has the opportunity to influence the selection of issues where the League will focus time, talent, and money.
