Membership Matters by Linda Patterson and Sharon Norris

As our Branch meetings begin again this Fall, it is nice to remember that we have a great membership recruitment tool in the Shape the Future campaign. The Shape the Future membership campaign is an opportunity for current members to offer a discounted rate to prospective members. With this campaign, new members pay just 50 percent of the national dues rate when they join AAUW at a public event. Branches also earn one free national membership to give away for every two newly recruited members, with a maximum of three free memberships annually. Please encourage friends and family to join AAUW at a Branch event. That benefits both the new member and the Branch.

Please welcome new member Mollie McDonald. Mollie graduated from California State University, Sacramento, in May with a BA in psychology and a minor in statistics. She will be attending University of Nevada, Reno, in the fall to pursue a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. Mollie is the past president of the CSUS AAUW affiliate and was on the Branch 2017-18 Tech Trek Committee. Although she will be moving to Reno temporarily to attend school, she intends to reside in California permanently, with the goal of giving back to her community. Mollie hopes to attend the September Branch meeting. Please take the opportunity to say hello and welcome her to the Branch.
