The League of Women Voters of the Bay Area held its biennial convention on Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 9:30 AM to noon at the San Mateo County Community College District Board Room, 3401 CSM Dr. in San Mateo. The Convention Kit was mailed to each League in early April.

Important amendments to the Articles of Incorporation and to the By-Laws were presented for approval. The budget, as well as the program for 2016-18 was debated and adopted by the convention delegates. The Board is not recommending an increase in the LWVBA dues. Board members for 2016-18 were elected.

One part of the discussion.

As at the League of Women Voters California and LWVUS conventions, delegates should be informed about what their local League thinks about the proposed items but are not instructed as to how to vote on any of them.

The number of voting delegates each of the 20 local Leagues in the Bay Area is entitled to at LWVBA convention is in proportion to its official membership count as of January 31 of this year, according to the LWVBA Bylaws. The Berkeley, Albany, Emeryville membership is approximately 240 members, so we will be authorized to have 5 delegates.
