Membership Musings- November

membership musings

colorful people background



On October 28th, an orientation was held at Palm Beach State for 46 new members!   Karen Wilkerson, Darlene Kostrub, Patty Whitehill and Penny Butler-Schillinger presented how our League works and speakers from the different issue groups presented short presentations to introduce themselves and their issues to the new members.

  • Mark Schneider gave a presentation on the Petition Drive for the Restoration of Rights for Former Felons
  • Carol Nikov spoke about the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact
  • A welcome addition to the agenda were two high school interns, Faith Maniti and Dayalis Zamora, who work on the Civics Education team.  They presented a wonderful summary of that committee’s work. What an inspiration to witness these great young speakers getting involved!


After the presentations, the new members were given a chance to speak with the different issue group chairpersons one to one. All the issue group representatives indicated that they had wonderful participation with new members signing up to help them. Welcome new members!
