Serve on a Committee

Voter Service is always a popular committee, although in a bit of a lull now between major elections. However, we are registering voters and holding a public information meeting on the May 5 Ballot Proposal. For more information contact Earl Bickett at

There is an Energy and Environment Committee and a group following education. We are also forming a group to study poverty in our area and some of our public meetings will focus on this issue. Contact Chris Zilke.

Be an Observer

As one veteran observer put it "Governmental bodies often act more openly - and, we can hope, more responsibly - when they know the public is watching them. The League observers, by their very presence, remind the bodies that they are in the public eye. When I was an observer many years ago, I felt that a significant function was keeping the boards honest."

Observers also learn about issues that are or may become items for local study and/or action.

Join the Board!

The LWVBCC Board of Directors meets nine times a year, alternating between Three Oaks and Bridgman. Board members have an administrative responsibility, for example treasurer or communications, or responsibility for an area of interest such as the environment or education. Some Board members are veterans and some are new and we have men as well as women.

Help chart the direction of this local League and make a difference!

If you're interested in being on the Board contact Chris Zilke at
