CASA Update and League Program Planning. Program Planning is an annual review of our local positions so all members can consider whether they need to be updated with a study or whether they are relevant + or whether they are just fine and continue to use them for action locally. Every other year we review either our State positions or National positions to determine our "program" or platform for the following two years. The National convention is this year, so we are reviewing the National positions, which will be voted upon at the convention in June. Last May was our State Convention in Clarkdale + so we reviewed our State positions last February. This is a great meeting to really delve into what the League stands for + and understand how we use these positions to take action at the National, State and Local levels. Members Sandra Goodwin and Muriel Haverland will provide a professional and excellent overview to League program to guide us into the discussion.

Quinci Castleberry a Court Appointed Special Advocate will be our guest speaker to give a brief talk about CASA.
