Bernice Crawford
05:40:18
For up to sounds better.
Jess Backofen
05:41:19
finally getting the hang of the virtual voting! :D
edward gracely
05:49:08
Fully agree with Evelyn. I was thinking of mentioning to the bylaws committee or the board to fix it by next Convention.
edward gracely
05:54:05
Doris: I hear you, and sometimes other wording is better when they/them sounds really awkward. I think it sounds OK in the amendment I proposed, but there may be places where "that individual" or other language is smoother. Note that they/them has kind of become acceptable as an almost singular use for this purpose/
Susan Ahlgren
05:57:44
If there is a desire to eliminate all references to gender - should the League be known as the League of Voters? (eliminating "women")?
Susan Sferas
05:59:01
At every National convention there is a movement to change the name but there is such historical significance to it it doesn't pass
Joyce Harley
05:59:39
Edward that is why I suggest we wait. This is a too haphazard way of trying to be politically current😣
jennette williams
06:00:28
There are accepted definitions and use of pronouns for such purposes.
ellenmaak
06:01:37
Our title for 101 years is a different thing. I don’t change my first name….
Evelyn C Murphy (she/her)
06:09:05
Thank you Michelle!
Susan Sferas
06:11:12
I have a 15 minute clock running since this is a main motion
Nancy Hedinger
06:21:27
That’s next after the vote on the amendment. There will be discussion.
edward gracely
06:27:09
TERRY: I don't even see 3 places needing change. Why not pick one and make that motion.
Joyce Harley
06:39:31
Agree with Rosemarie.This needs further clarification. Too hastily done.
Kristin Burke
06:41:00
YAYAYYAYAYAAA!!!!
