From Karen Sheek, LWVCO Board President...
Greetings League Members,
As I sit down to compose this letter, I am struck by how quickly this summer has passed. Children have returned to school, there’s a nip in the air when I step out on my back patio in the morning, and some of the maples in the median at the entrance to my subdivision are beginning to turn a beautiful shade of orange. I hope you all have had a wonderful summer, reconnecting in-person with family and friends and that you are looking forward to getting back into the swing of things with your Local Leagues.
Summer has been a productive time for the LWVCO staff and Board. And there have been some challenges and changes as well. We welcomed four new Board members at our June Board Orientation: Sharon Davis, Chris Humphries, Veniece Miller, and Camila Navarette. While they have been wonderful additions to our Board, two continuing members have or will be stepping off the Board before the end of their terms: Lois Adams, Chair of the Nominating Committee, resigned in July, and Steve Coddington, Co-Director of Voter Services, will be leaving in October to move closer to family and a sweet new grandbaby.
Connie Fox, a fellow Montezuma County League member, has agreed to come on the LWVCO Board and become the Chair of the Nominating Committee in Lois’s place. Connie has served on the Nominating Committee for the past two years and has hit the ground running in search of a replacement for Steve’s Voter Support position. If you have Voter Support experience with your Local League or know someone you believe would be successful in this position, please email Connie. We’re looking at some exciting changes in Voter Services this year and are anxious to fill this position.
