President's Message

Michele Meyer Welcome to the beginning of a very celebratory year. 2020 is the 100th anniversary of Women’s right to vote. Look for more in the coming months.

As always our board has been working diligently over the summer- organizing delightful programs, changing the accounting system, planning fundraisers, updating member lists, beginning to organize the Gold Book, soliciting ads, ordering T-shirts to sell and more -- all this to prepare an interesting, informative, and fun year for all of our members. Please try to attend as many programs and events as possible. You will reap the added reward of visiting with friends you may not have seen in a while and meeting other members. Look to the Programs notice for the exciting events coming this year.

We were pleased to send several girls to Tech Trek, the weeklong STEM camp, this summer. We also sponsored an SRJC student to go to the National Conference of College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) in Washington in June.

A couple of board positions are still open. We need a President Elect to sit in on board meetings and observe, in order to prepare to take on the position next year. We would also like someone to take on the Public Policy Chair position, Pam Granger is willing to mentor!

The AAUW State Convention will be held in Northern California this year: April 17-19, at the SF Airport Westin Hotel.

I'm looking forward to seeing you at our first program of the 2019-2020 year--the September Celebration (Fall Social).
Michele Meyer, President
