September 2018 Board Briefs by Liz Jordan

Following are highlights from the September AAUW Sacramento Board Meeting:

  • Co-President Donna Homes reported she has printed 100 copies of the new yearly study “Broken Ladders: Barriers to Women’s Representation in Nonprofit Leadership,” available for members to use.
  • Two important Oct. 13 events with our sister-branch CHAR: a morning meeting to educate members and the public about the November ballot measures, followed by Take Back the Night table in downtown Sacramento in the evening.
  • New Business – a small committee will meet with Membership Directors Linda Patterson and/or Sharon Norris to create guidelines for the Dues Assistance Program. The fund currently has about $700 that the branch is not currently using but is set aside for assisting members with dues in a time of need.
