Those attending in-person are asked to donate ($20 suggested) to help support the annual meeting costs. Attendees can bring cash or a check, written to the League of Women Voters of Greater Omaha, the local League host for this year’s annual meeting. 

The annual meeting will include the presentation and adoption of the LWVNE budget for April 2024 through March 2025 and a report on the LWVNE’s priority bills in the 108 th  Legislature second (short) session.

“It might be my extroverted nature, but I am reminded during in-person events that when a group of like-minded people show up, share their expertise and work together to help other people, I am inspired to continue the advocacy work as a team,” said Janelle Stevenson, co-president of the LWVNE. 

“I cannot thank you all enough for your ideas, time and behind-the-scenes work that goes into continuing our legacy as a nonpartisan organization.”

This year’s featured speaker is Dr. Lina Traslaviña Stover, executive director of the Heartland Workers Center. A sociologist with a deep commitment to addressing inequality and social justice, she seeks to gather passion with talents to build stronger communities. According to Stover, “leadership is about motion. It is the active and intentional effort to build relationships, communicate with compassion and collaborate patiently,” she said. “Learning is social,” Stover added. “We do it best when we process with others.”
