Have you thought of volunteering for a board position for our branch? Have you thought that you don’t know enough about AAUW to jump in? Would you feel more comfortable with a bit more knowledge? The annual leadership training for our area will be on April 1 at CSU East Bay in Concord. The topics for training are:
- Conflict Resolution Improvised
- Enact to Engage – Modeling the Value Promise
- Lobbying and Advocacy
- Empower, Engage and Retain Younger Members
- Dealing with an Aging Membership
Several of us attended the training two years ago and found it to be helpful. While in-depth knowledge of AAUW is not required to hold an office, one feels more comfortable with training such as this. If you are interested in getting more involved in the mission of our branch, you can always volunteer on a committee, where you will learn by doing. I, for one, have learned a lot by holding an office. Sometimes you don’t realize how much you learn as you go, all while getting to know some really nice ladies!
To register for the leadership training, go to the AAUW California site:
Sign up by March 25. The cost is $25, which includes lunch. If you plan to go, let me know if you would like to carpool as I will be driving. I hope several of you choose to get more involved in the business of AAUW Sacramento!
