Dot Ridings to Speak at Council

National League President Dorothy S. Ridings, an articulate and forceful LWV advocate, will speak at the LWV State Council to be held on June 2 at the Sheraton Waikiki in Honolulu. Ridings' participation marks the first time a national league president has visited Hawaii in over a decade.

Ridings will discuss the current and future status of the League both nationally and locally. She will also speak during the annual women's day meeting sponsored by the Honolulu County Committee on the Status of Women, which is being held concurrently with the League State Council. The theme of the conference is "Na Wahine Holomua", or Women Moving Forward Together. As such, Ridings will also speak on gender gap issues and women's role in the 1984 elections.

Since being elected as National President in May, 1982, Ridings has stimulated much public interest in and support for the League, while providing dynamic orations on subjects such as human resources, education and open government. A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Ridings joined the League in 1968 and served as bulletin editor, public relations chair and voter service chair. From 1974 to 1976, she was president of the Louisville and Jefferson County Leagues. In 1976 Ridings became a national board member and as chair of the League's Human Resources Department coordinated activities in the areas of welfare reform, fair housing and equal educational opportunities.
