Assessment and Transformation Roadmap

Change is coming at all of us faster and faster and we need to adapt or get left in the dust. You can read the full report by clicking here

The first half is an analysis of other "federated" (i.e three-level) organizations and how some organizations somewhat similar to the League have adapted.

The second half digs into the changes WE need to make. These include working more seamlessly across the three levels of the League, using technology better to increase our communication with ourselves and with those we want to involve or serve, lightening the routine workload of our volunteers so they can focus on our mission to "empower voters, defend democracy," and generally questioning "the League way" when comfortable old ways are holding us back.
