Organizing Meeting for Charleston Area Members-At-Large Unit: Nov. 11

Great news for the Charleston Area — We’ve decided to become a Members-at-Large unit!

On October 9, a group of a little more than a dozen motivated women (and a few men) affirmed that there is a role in the Charleston area for a League of Women Voters Chapter. As the first step towards becoming a full chapter, we decided to officially coalesce as a MAL Unit.

As a Members-at-Large (MAL) Unit, we will

  • Hold 4 meetings a year
  • Elect a steering committee (to be elected at the next meeting)
  • Adopt a nonpartisan policy
  • Hold voter service events

At this meeting, we will:

  • Elect a steering committee
  • Adopt a nonpartisan policy
  • Suggest a calendar of voter services activities
  • Discuss establishing an observer corps to report on local and state meetings

More details on how to affiliate as a MAL with the Charleston area chapter, and notes from the October 9th meeting here
