What we do...
We study key public policy issues and take action to support our views. We hold periodic community forums on topics related to current League studies or governmental issues.
Our two areas of current focus:
Study "green" building codes for Winnebago County municipalities.
Discuss issues of diversity in Winnebago County. Define the elements of diversity and the real vs perceived issues involved.
Join us at these activities:
Food for Thought Luncheons - Feature speakers on various city, county, school, state and national topics of interest to League members. These luncheons are held at noon on the second Wednesday of every month at Primo Restaurant, 2605 Jackson St., Oshkosh. No reservation is needed, order from the menu. Meetings are always open to the public.
Neenah Menasha Breakfast - Members gather on periodic Saturday mornings at 9:00 am to discuss Neenah Menasha issues of LWV interest. Breakfast held at Neenah Ground Round, 1000 Cameron Way. Anyone welcome.
Candidate Forums throughout Winnebago County - Prior to each primary and general election, we sponsor candidate forums in the Neenah, Menasha and Oshkosh areas. Oshkosh forums are co-sponsored and televised live by Oshkosh Media and posted on Oshkosh Media YouTube channel. We also assist with voter registration and education about Photo Voter ID requirements.
Lively Issues Program Planning. Early each year we meet as a league to discuss current concerns and decide direction based on the community needs and member interest. This is one of the main drivers of our work all year. Watch our calendar for dates and location.
