Help us build Okaloosa County’s Community Alliance
In 2000 Florida’s Department of Children and Families (DCF) was empowered to establish a community alliance in each county to “provide a focal point for community participation and governance of community-based services.” Accordingly three of the four counties comprising Circuit 1 formed an alliance of community leaders and stakeholders to collaborate on DCF activities within the circuit. Okaloosa County is the missing link. Will you help us get an Alliance going? Call 850-621-4088 or email to volunteer.
Your Email Address: Be an informed League member
To effectively and efficiently communicate within the organization, League employs technologies—such as email —that achieve the broadest reach possible. LWVUS does not sell or trade member email addresses! They send national action alerts and weekly “Leaders' Update” to those on the mailing list. Email is easily deleted if you don’t want to read it, but if you don’t receive it, you may miss out on important League information.
Be sure the League has your email address. Individual members can add their own email address to the national database through the national website.
