Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF) Business Meeting at the CSAC 126th Annual Conference

November 20, 2020

CSAC’s 126th Annual Conference was held virtually from November 12-19. The conference offered a variety of workshops, speakers, and policy committee meetings with a strong presence from the Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF).

The WLF held their annual business meeting on November 16, at which members discussed and approved changes to the WLF by-laws, discussed partnership opportunities with the First 5 Association of California, covered 2021 potential interests to the group, and elected two new co-chairs. Supervisor Lisa Bartlett, from Orange County, was elected as the new Urban Counties Co-Chair, replacing Supervisor Kathy Miller from San Joaquin County. In addition, WLF members elected Supervisor Candy Carlson, from Tehama County, as the new Rural Counties Co-Chair, replacing Supervisor Rosemarie Smallcombe from Mariposa County. Members also took some time to recognize the contributions of Supervisor Judy Morris, from Trinity County, who was a founding member of the WLF and is retiring at the end of this year.

Prior to the business meeting, the WLF celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment with a video montage. The video features the 2020 WLF co-chairs, Mendocino County CEO Carmel Angelo, and a several other Supervisors who felt it was important to participate in such a milestone commemoration. As the video acknowledges, the 19th Amendment was just one step in the ongoing fight for equal voting rights in this country. This video is both a celebration of how far we have come, as well as a reminder that there is more work to be done.
