There is an amazing opportunity to attend panel discussions, public lectures, and classroom discussions (Suffrage, How does LWV make decisions) which are all open to the public, with past LWVUS Exective Director, Nancy Tate at the University of Charleston from Tuesday 23 to Thursday 26.
Our own Becky Cain-Ceperly who served as LWVWV President (1983-1987) and LWVUS President (1992-1998) will take part on one of the panels!
