Learn about the ways cannabis may bring you more joy and relief, the science behind how it works with our body, and also a highlight of the cannabis industry in California.

President's Message

We are well into our exciting year. See the programs section for next events coming up.  

Also, watch for listings of opportunities to volunteer.  The 100th Anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote celebrations begin in January. The State Convention at San Francisco Airport Westin, will be in April.  Women’s Equal Pay Day and the Women’s March are also good events to meet other members.  

We are including highlights of board meetings in The Perspective so members are aware of all that is going on within our branch.  

NOTE ABOUT GOLD BOOKS:  THE GOLD BOOK DIRECTORY IS FOR USE ONLY BY MEMBERSHIP AND MAY NOT BE USED FOR RECRUITING OR SOLICITATION.

AAUW National has initiated a 5-Star Recognition Program.  Branches can earn stars by fostering our mission of advancing gender equity for women and girls. More to come on this.  This link explains what is entailed in earning stars.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the upcoming programs.
Michele Meyer, President

GET INVOLVED!

We need a President-Elect to succeed Michele Meyer. We'd like to see a seamless leadership transition for the next AAUW year!

Public Policy Chair Pam Granger would like to work with a "shadow", an "intern", or whatever you'd like to call yourself to take on Public Policy reporting for the next AAUW year.

Two great ways to get more involved with our organization! Please consider
