Mark your calendars for June 25 at 5:30 p.m. for the AAUW Sacramento Branch Potluck, which will be hosted this year by Branch member Sandi Schoenman. More information will be available soon. If you are able to help with the food and organization of the event, please contact Nancy McCabe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AAUW Sacramento Branch meetings and programs have concluded for the 2015-16 year. Our many programs would not have been possible without the coordinated effort and participation of a cadre of dedicated Branch members. Many thanks are due to Nancy McCabe, Cherril Peabody, Anne Rhodes, Ana Facio, May Ruth Lynch, Anne Lynch, Ruth Burgess, Vivian Counts, Vicki Nicholson, Donna Holmes, Kathy Papst, Gloria Yost, Hedda Simpson, Jane Cooley, Carol Doughty, Deborah Dunn, Barbara Smith, Ruth Ann Hines, Sandra Winter, Sandi Shoenman, Cathy Locke, Sharon Norris, Dawn Boyd and Linda Whitney for their roles in suggesting and recruiting speakers, providing refreshments, serving as greeters, organizing media promotion and handling registration at our meetings this year.
Branch programs serve to educate our members and the community on issues that are important to women, provide opportunities for our members to meet and socialize with one another, increase our member retention, showcase our Branch accomplishments and emphasize our mission and goals as an organization.
At this time the Branch does not have a Program Director for 2016-17. However, Branch programs will continue thanks to individual members who have stepped forward and taken responsibility to organize one event each next year. As an all-volunteer non-profit organization, we are only able to do what our membership is ready, willing and able to do. Look for a calendar of Branch meetings and Programs in upcoming newsletters and think about volunteering to help out. These individuals can’t do it alone, and your participation can help ensure the program success. You will meet dedicated women doing what they can do to promote the AAUW mission, have fun and be greatly appreciated.
