Event description
Join us On April 17th for AAUW-WA Annual Meeting!

About this event

Whee! It’s been a wild ride of a year!

We missed our much-anticipated Convention of April 2020, and Zoom has become our way of life. We are all looking forward to a future that more closely resembles our pre-Covid lives.

But for now, we have business to do and enjoyment to take from this organization that means so much to us--as people who care about advocacy, women’s health, children’s education and well-being, financial viability of families, equity and opportunity for women in all aspects of their/our lives.

You won’t want to miss out on our April 17th Annual Meeting, so mark your calendars now! Our morning will be business oriented starting with registration at 8:15. Delegates will vote on proposed by-laws changes and public policy priorities. We will elect officer and board of director positions for the next biennium. Every AAUW-WA member is invited to join us, although only those designated as delegates will be voting. The meeting will keep all of us informed and energized about the good work being done on many fronts. For those newer members of AAUW, the business meeting will help you understand the workings of the state organization.

After an early lunch break, the 12:00 afternoon session will be an invigorating opportunity to hear about our successes and challenges. Our Keynote Speaker, Lisa Maatz, is known to many of us for her powerhouse leadership on a myriad of women’s issues. We will also hear from AAUW CEO Kim Churches, from an OSPI representative about the current state of education in Washington State, and from a dynamic duo of historical fiction writers.
