The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
Tom has been active at all levels of League, most particularly in financial roles, and has worked with almost all local Leagues in California. He served as Treasurer of LWV California in 2011-13, following four years as its Budget Chair. Tom has also focused heavily on voter service, both in his own League and with LWVC.
Tom currently is president of his local League, Budget Chair (and soon to be Treasurer) for the LWV Los Angeles County ILO, and LWVUS and LWVC consultant for state and local Leagues interested in converting to tax status under Sec. 501(c)(3). He is also very proud of the fact that his wife is currently a member of the LWVUS Board of Directors and Chair of its Advocacy Committee.
Tom will review with us his experiences advising numerous state and local Leagues in converting to Sec. 501(c)(3). He will discuss how well this new tax status works with League organizations, and how this status can be of benefit to our League with almost no additional work. And he will describe his assistance to Leagues which do convert, outlining the relatively few steps in the process.
Please note that we are not currently able to accept tax-deductible donations online.
