The 2023-2024 Working Groups are moving forward on program priorities approved at Annual Meeting in June 2023 and formulated at Opening Meeting in September. League members have the opportunity to influence the selection of issues and join a group. We welcome new members as we plan and execute public forums, informational meetings, community events, and campaigns.
Local Study on Town Meeting
Celebration of Student-led Civics Projects in School
LWV-AA will continue to work with member towns schools to support and celebrate 8th grade and High School Student-led Civics Projects. This year we will expand our engagement with the Hudson Public Schools and will engage at least one other school in our area towns in the effort. This work would celebrate the civics projects being developed by students with the whole community and reinforce the significance of civics education to all residents of all ages.
Civil Education on Important Topics
LWV-Acton Area will develop public forums on a set of topics of significance and general interest in all six of our member towns. In the LWV-AA Annual Meeting, water quality was identified as a primary focus.
LWV-Acton Area will develop resources to educate our member towns on Municipal Finances ahead of the Annual Town meetings. We’ll develop materials to explore tax levies, overrides, debt exclusions and other topics that are key to an understanding of Municipal Finance.
