Thank you to all who attended the LWVGB 2016 Business Meeting at Sweet Tea Restaurant!

At our Annual Business Meeting on Thursday, April 28, we adopted a new budget, re-adopted program for 2016-2017 and elected new members of the board. (No bylaws changes are recommended.)

We are very grateful to the outgoing board members - President Ida Tyree-Hyche, Treasurer Michael O’Donnell, Director Connie Arnwine, and Director Barbara Powell - for their leadership and so many accomplishments in 2015-2016. They and YOU, all our League members, have been a busy bunch this year! To get an idea of what your League has been up to, have a look at this little slide show “LWVGB Year in Review: 2015-2016” above. You can share it with this link:

The new board is excited to begin work! Continuing on the board are Jean Johnson as President, Arlene Godwin as Vice-President, Starr Culpepper as Secretary, Margaret “Maggie” Howard as Director, and Nancy Sales as Director. We welcome new board members Treasurer Rev. Albert Hyche and Director Mikesha Harvill. See the end of this message for names and full contact information for your new board. You are always welcome to attend board meetings. Feel free to contact any board member to volunteer and to make suggestions for how we can “Make Democracy Work” better in the Greater Birmingham community! We also thank outgoing President Ida Tyree-Hyche for accepting the position as Chair of the 2016-2017 Nominating Committee.
