Alice Smith's home 2015 Program Planning Session. The Annual Program Planning meeting is that important annual opportunity for all of our members to decide what issues to focus on in 2015 at the local, county, Bay Area and state levels.

Are there issues that you believe the League needs to address? This is the time and place to share your concerns. Remember program planning and policy formulation enables our League to participate in government and to actively influence public policy. We may also consider new issues raised by other levels of the League.

Join us for study, animated discussions, and a light lunch provided by the board.

Several local League members and other Leagues in the state are proposing state studies. All known proposals are listed below. Please plan to participate if you know of another proposal or are the author of a proposal and would like to adjust the content.
