activities per year (e.g., read and discuss a book, attend an event or
presentation, etc.) to build and expand their own knowledge and plan
at least one activity to engage other branch members. Contact: Debra

support our AAUW branch scholarships. Contact: Bette Kulp, Sue Fong,

We welcome new interest groups. Got an idea for one? Send your
proposal to the newsletter editor so it can be presented to the
membership and then talk about your idea at a meeting. We all have
time for something we are passionate about or would like to learn
more about
