Board Activities and Governance
What does this mean for Members?
Individual League members are encouraged to be politically active. However, when they participate in partisan activities, they may not identify themselves as League members. A League will be a strong and effective political force to the degree that it can deal with and accept controversy and live with uncertainty. Keep in mind that conflict of interest may arise between a “board” member’s paid employment and her or his role in the League.
No member (including officers) may speak for the League unless they have first obtained review and approval by a majority of Administrative Team of the proposed statement.
Key Member Restrictions
Certain individuals who have high public visibility as officers or leaders of the League (Key Members) are restricted from partisan activity.
