Series 2: Action, Education, and Studies, 1958-1999, n.d

Scope and Content Note

Arrangement

Arranged hierarchically and then alphabetically by subject. Divided into five subseries: Governance, Natural Resources, Social Policy, Transportation, and Other Action. Subseries names relate to program areas of the LWVBA.
This series, the largest in the collection, contains action files, project files, workshop and conference records, and study material documenting the LWVBA positions and programs dating from 1958. Very little action and study material for the years 1976-1978, 1982-1986, and 1988-1990 exists in this series. Files on specific agencies may exist in more than one subseries due to the topic of the agency's activity. For example, files regarding the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) are located in Subseries 2.1, Governance, and in Subseries 2.2, Natural Resources, due to ABAG's involvement in both regional government planning and environmental management planning. Legislation files in Subseries 2.5, Other Action, pertain to various topics that may also be represented in other subseries. For example, legislation files on assembly bill 2310 deal with regional planning, and other regional planning material, such as studies, are located in Subseries 2.1, Governance. Documentation of LWVBA positions and programs may also be found in Subseries 1.5, Committees; Subseries 1.6, Programs; and Subseries 1.7, Conventions and Meetings.

Records of the Bay Area Monitor Project and the publication entitled, Bay Area Monitor, are part of the Transportation Alternatives Project files.
