New Member Meeting
Join us for a casual, fun evening to learn more about our AAUW branch. We will have a chance to get to know each other, explore opportunities, and hear about the important role AAUW plays in our community.
WHEN: Thursday, June 13 at 7 p.m.
WHERE: Patricia's home, 29 Caulfield Court (on the east side)
Everyone is invited, as you may have decided this is the time to learn more about how to connect with our organization, how to find the right sections that interest you.
We will be meeting throughout the summer so plan to join us. Email me to be on an invitation list for our get-togethers as we won't have another AAUW newsletter until September. Bring a friend -- this is a great time to join.
Please RSVP so we will have plenty of refreshments!

A few notes about AAUW topics:
From AAUW National: Dues do not cover our annual budget. This financial issue has resulted in many staffing cuts. How can you help? AAUW received a grant of $500,000 from Coca Cola, with the stipulation we train 100,000 people by August 2019. To date 25,000 people, mostly outside of AAUW, have taken these online courses. Please take one of the courses yourself: Work Smart orStart Smart. Please send information about these courses to others so they can also take a course and help AAUW keep this grant. https://salary.aauw.org/
State Conventions: If you would like to hear what went on at 2018 conventions, please follow link here.
Hope you all have a wonderful summer!
