2022-2023 LWVGO Leadership

What is the LWVGO Board? 

A volunteer Board of Directors governs the League of Women Voters of Greater Omaha. There are 12-15 members of the Board serving various positions. The Board is a working board meaning that the board carries out a great majority of the administrative functions of the organization, and the programmatic functions, including our events, clubs, and voter services. 

Time Commitment

We have monthly hour-long board meetings with committee meetings and other work to be completed outside of the meetings, with the time commitment varying depending on the role. On average, board members spend 10-15 hours per month on LWVGO board activities.

Terms and Policies

Board members serve two year terms. The LWVGO has a 100% board giving policy meaning that all members agree to give a financial gift that is meaningful to them on an annual basis. The gift cannot be designated for a particular purpose, it must be to support LWVGO general operations.
