Letter from Outgoing Board President, Karen Sheek
Greetings League Members,

This is my last official correspondence as your Colorado State Board President. What a ride this past two years has been! In addition to the usual challenges of assuming a new role, I got to do it during a pandemic! We all learned to navigate Zoom, as well as master other technologies that would allow us to continue to do our work — there was much work to be done, and work we did! 

I am proud of what has been accomplished during my tenure. We have made progress on our Strategic Plan and continued to make subtle changes to transform our working Board into a governing board that works, as well as strengthen our relationship with our Local Leagues. A high five to all of our members on the ground working every day to “Empower Voters. Defend Democracy." 
Notes from the 6.21.2022 Board Meeting
The Board of Directors for the League of Women Voters of Colorado met virtually on the evening of June 21st.

Present: Board President Karen Sheek, Vice President Barbara Whinery, Treasurer Bonnie Seals, Toni Larson, Kathy Wilson, Anne McGihon, Connie Fox, Cameron Manning, Venice Miller, Sharon Davis, Irene Tynes, Beth Malmskog, Lena Brown.
