The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
WHEREAS, the reduced participation levels of members and the reduction in the number of members of the Organization has been considered by the Board of Directors of the Organization (the "Board"); and
WHEREAS, the Board has thus determined that it is not feasible nor reasonable to continue the existence of the Organization
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board hereby recommends the adoption of the following resolution by the membership of the Organization:
"RESOLVED, THAT THE LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY, INC. BE DISSOLVED AND ITS ASSETS DISTRIBUTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF ITS ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION AND THE TEXAS BUSINESS ORGANIZATIONS CODE."
Pursuant to the Plan of Dissolution, also unanimously approved by the voting membership (which constituted a quorum), all assets of the organization, following the payment of all of its debts, will be remitted to the League of Women Voters of Texas State Education Fund, with the suggestion that such funds be credited for use by the League of Women Voters of the Houston Area (to the extent that the State League will permit such designation). The non-cash asset of LWV - MoCo(which consists of an LED projector)will also be donated to the State League for educational uses if they have a use for it, or, if not, to a 501 (c) (3) organization.
We are saddened by this action, but it's been a long time in the making.
We recommend that persons interested in joining a League of Women Voters organization in the area contact the League of Women Voters of the Houston Area.
