As branch leadership and state leadership transitions to a new year effective July 1st, we want to touch base and encourage communication among our members, between our branches and across our communities. It is so important to share the AAUW values and the meaningful friendships that compel us each year to renew our dues, grow in shared experiences, engage in meaningful programs and support AAUW’s mission.
As part of the Georgia AAUW leadership team, we welcome your feedback and your thoughts about how you see AAUW moving forward … not just in the coming year, but in all ways that AAUW can be involved and reach out to all levels of our communities. Also, let us know of a passion you would like to share through AAUW and think about ways we could expand our membership in our local community as well as across Georgia.
For each of us, AAUW has become an integral part of our personal growth experience and has rewarded us with friendships that last a lifetime. Welcome to a new AAUW year, as we work together to strengthen our bonds and reach out to embrace others in our communities.
