An Urgent Message from our Board

National Election-2021
Ends May 17, 2021

During the National Election-2021, all AAUW members will vote on three issues:
(1) Approval of the Open Membership Bylaws Amendment which eliminates the degree requirement for membership.
(2) Support of the Public Policy Priorities for 2021-2023.
(3) Election of Candidates to the National Board of Directors.
On the AAUW National Website you can explore the issues in depth please; go to aauw.org/membership, scroll down the page and click on Open Membership Toolkit.

The Open Membership Bylaws Amendment proposes the elimination of the degree requirement for membership. Our branch Board of Directors unanimously supports passage of this amendment.  To further inform and explain the issues surrounding this proposed amendment, read articles in our April and May branch newsletters.

You should have received your unique personalized ballot to vote on the Open Membership Requirement Amendment to the AAUW Bylaws in an email message on April 7. Paper ballots have been mailed to those without email addresses on file. The sender is “AAUW Shannon Wolfe.” If you did not receive this message or if you have questions, please contact AAUW at connect@aauw.org.
