LWVCC Annual Meeting 2014

On May 3, 2014 the LWVCC heard from two speakers about end of life issues in NJ. A law is being proposed that would allow assisted suicides in restricted cases. The speakers discussed the law and its pros and cons. The League doesn't have a position on this topic..

On May 18, 2013 our Annual Meeting took place, this year at Caffe Aldo Lamberti. Our keynote speaker was James E. Harris, President of the NJ NAACP.

Fall Kickoff September 14, 2010

In September 2010 the LWVCC organized a "Call to Service" Summit with information and training provided by the Citizens Campaign and a panel of local leaders. It was held at the CIM Center of Camden County College, Blackwood Campus. Around 100 people attended. We hope many of them will continue to answer the call to service!

At LWVUS Convention 2010

Four members of the LWVCC were at National (LWVUS) Convention in Atlanta in June 2010. Co-Presidents Harriet Snyder and Winne Rowell-Bullard went, and found the experience to be inspiring and educational. Members Ed Gracely and Anne Maiese are on the LWVNJ state board (Anne is the President thereof) and went as representatives of the state League. They both enjoy conventions and find them very worthwhile experiences. In addition to attending sessions, Anne participated in a panel to describe our award-winning Running & Winning activity for high school girls, and Ed helped run a session on issues in election auditing.

Registering Voters

One of the classic League activities. Yes, we really do it, although it is by no means our only (or main) activity! One of the most satisfying places to register voters is after the Naturalization Ceremony for new citizens every few months in Camden. Freshly-minted Americans, eager to participate in democracy, and the League is THERE to register them to vote! Here are some pictures from our voter registration activities.

2010 -- After the Naturalization Ceremony in Camden

2010 -- Ditto. More new citizens, ready to vote (with Winne!)

2009 -- with collaborators from Delta Sigma Theta

Member Appreciation Brunch June 27, 2010

Paid up members were treated to brunch at the Coastline in Cherry Hill, after which we heard about some opportunities for members to become involved and to learn skills.

Member Appreciation attendees
At this meeting, we heard about a number of opportunities and tasks:
Many of these tasks provide an amazing opportunity for personal development. You could learn to be comfortable and skilled as a public speaker (moderating), learn how to prepare an organization's budget or keep its books, how to organize a program, write for publication, facilitate a small group (as part of Running & Winning)… The League provides leadership training (consider it a perk of membership!). Now it's up to you…

2001 -- Rally in Trenton for Campaign Finance Reform

In 2001 a number of LWVCC members went to Trenton to see and support "Granny D", a senior citizen who walked the country for campaign finance reform, and Steve Ma, who did the same in NJ. Preliminary to the rally, we all made personal plackards in support of reforming campaigns!

Vist to NJ American Water, October 2009

The League has long been interested in environmental issues, including clean water. So we took a tour of the NJ American plant in Delran, to learn more about how our local water is processed and cleaned. We saw both a scale model and an actual room with a "superpulsator". The water flows into the bottom, percolates up through the slats, and leaves its particles and such behind before exiting at the top.

Water purification: Initial purification is with ozone, which is generated electrically from oxygen (as happens in a thunderstorm). Later a bit of chlorine is added to maintain purity. The devices to generate ozone are quite large as well!

2004 fall LWVCC Kickoff -- visit to the statehouse and Old Barracks Museum via the River Line

We all met up and took the "green" route to Trenton on the train. We began with a very interesting tour of the Old Barracks Museum, with historical actors presenting their "side" of historical events and reenacting scenes. Then we visited the statehouse, saw meeting rooms, and had a good informative time!
