Organizational sketch: The Columbus Area Women's Political Caucus
( Ohio) organized in 1977 as a multipartisan coalition of women to
impact on and participate in government. The Caucus seeks to elect
qualified women to political office, support candidates committed
to women's issues, train women in political matters, and lobby for
women's legislation such as the Equal Rights Anendment. According
to its 1980 constitution, membership is open to all central Ohioans.
The organization is governed by an executive board elected by the
membership and consisting of four officers ( president, vice president,
secretary, and treasurer) and sixteen at- large members from both
major political parties. The Caucus also maintains Membership,
Publicity, Legislation and Issues, and Budget and Finance standing
committees, as well as Democratic Party and Republican Party task
forces. It is affiliated with the National Women's Political Caucus
and the Ohio Women's Political Caucus.
