Leagues often undertake studies. Studies begin with an interest in a topic, and commence when a chair for the study is appointed and other volunteers demonstrate a willingness to work on the proposed study.
According to the LWVCT Local League Reference Series-Study/Concurrence/Consensus 2014: “Study is the process of formally investigating and discussing a body of facts (including policy implications) whether supporting or contravening a working hypothesis, leading to or including a statement of position. A study can be part of any League’s “Program,” can take place at the local, state or national level, and is usually designed to provide the League with a basis for future political action.”
The Wilton League of Women Voters has participated in a number of studies; a few of WLWV’s recent studies are posted below.
