LWVHI By-Laws call for a convention in odd-numbered years and a meeting of the State Council in even-numbered years. The purposes of the convention are: 1) to adopt a program; 2) to elect state board officers and directors for two-year terms; 3) to adopt a budget for the ensuing fiscal year; and, 4) to transact such other business as may be presented.

Convention delegates are: Members of the State Board; presidents (or designee) of the local Leagues, and delegates chosen by the members enrolled in each local League. Each delegate must be a voting member enrolled in a recognized local League of LWVHI. and is entitled to one vote only - even if attending in two or more capacities.

Absentee or proxy voting is not permitted. Each local League in Hawal' i is entitled to one delegate for every 15 voting members belonging to that particular League as of January 1, 2005. Records of paid voting members kept in the State Office determine the official membership count for this purpose.

Additional information will be sent out in mid-April.
