A Bit of Our Nonprofit Corporate History.
The League of Women Voters of Berkeley was accepted as a corporation under the General Nonprofit Corporation Law of the State of California on August 26, 1965. You can read the Articles of Incorporation and the related documents on this page.
The Bylaws long preceded the incorporation and have been amended from time to time. The League extended its reach to include Albany and Emeryville and subsequently operated under the name League of Women Voters of Berkeley, Albany and Emeryville, or LWVBAE, but it did not file with the State to change the name at any time before 2015.
