As we prepare for Convention, we are talking more about our organization-wide transformation. The goals of this process are to strengthen the organization at every level, position our brand as a current and future-looking organization, as well as increase the League's visibility and mission impact.

This process has engaged league Leaders at every level of the organization over the past year and a half and has resulted in our Transformation Roadmap. This document outlines key initiatives and activities that will position the League toward our above goals. You can download and read the full report here or download an executive summary that covers the highlights of the report.

We welcome your feedback on the Transformation Roadmap and you can share your thoughts with us here as we all work to engage new and future activists throughout the League. Chris
