LWV BWC 2022 Annual Meeting

Guest Speaker: Stephen Gockley

Please log in first to register!

“I came to see that ‘our democracy,’ at best, has been restricted and aspirational.  It is never secured and requires continuous effort – struggle, even – to keep the promises we have made to each other.”

Stephen Gockley is a retired civil legal aid lawyer.  He and his wife, Ellie, have been members of our League since 2015.  During his career in Bellingham, he represented low-income clients seeking to protect their legal rights and meet their basic needs in areas involving access to health care, preserving tenant rights and affordable housing supports, enforcing disability rights, maintaining financial stability and self-sufficiency, and obtaining mental health treatment, special education services, and other public benefits.

Beyond individual client advocacy, Stephen sought to broaden the impact of his work by expanding the public awareness of poverty and its effects, by changing governmental and organizational policies, and by building community collaborations and partnerships.  We are excited to gain his insights on effective community engagement and the importance of focusing on equity in everything we do.

This year we need to fill four positions on the Board of Directors.  You will be voting for individuals instead of a slate.   Your ballot has been mailed to you.  (Note:  the original, white ballot, was sent in error; please vote using the lilac ballot.)

Prior to marking your ballot, please visit our website, https://lwvbellinghamwhatcom.org/2022-annual-meeting, to learn about the nominees and review other supporting documents.  Once you have marked your ballot, return it in the enclosed self-addressed, stamped envelope no later than June 13th. 

We are very happy that the Mt. Baker Theatre is making their Encore Room available for our hybrid Annual Meeting this year.  The theatre has upgraded their HVAC system with UV germicidal air purification making the air 95% free of microorganisms.  We will be requiring proof of vaccination and will attempt to provide plenty of social distance, but since the room has a limited capacity, please register early if you intend to join us in person.  Once registered, you will receive an email with more meeting details and a link to participate via Zoom if that is your preference.

When:
Saturday, June 18, 2022, 10:00 AM until 12:00 PM
Where:
Mt. Baker Theatre Encore Room
104 N Commercial St
Bellingham, WA  98225
Videoconference information will be provided in an email once registration is complete.
