Council 2024

LWVOR Council is a biennial event for state leaders to network, brainstorm, attend caucuses and workshops, and enjoy the company of like-minded people dedicated to empowering voters and defending democracy in 2024. This year we are meeting at Elk's Lodge in Newport! We will focus on local, state and national issues. View the full event agenda below!


Each League is entitled to two delegates to attend the meeting and vote on State League business items. In-person attendance is preferable, with virtual attendance available for business sessions for both delegates and observers. There is no limit to the number of local League observers who may attend. Your registration fee covers all business sessions, workshops, and speakers, as well as lunch and dinner on Saturday. Parking is free at the event.


Council check-in and dine-around sign-ups will be located at the Holiday Inn Express in Newport. They will begin at 2pm on Friday and run until 5pm, when groups will begin to gather for their respective dine-around groups. The main business session will take place on Saturday morning, with workshops, speakers, panels, and caucuses to follow. The event will conclude after the Sunday morning business meeting.
