The AAUW Student Affiliates at American River College, CSU Sacramento, and UC Davis, along with their local branch liaisons, have been meeting this year to get to know each other and establish a network for sharing ideas and projects.
The visiting and sharing that has occurred during brunch, hosted by the branch liaisons, has built a foundation for personal connections and friendships to form. At the latest gathering, pictured, there was an animated exchange of ideas along with some problem solving about the challenges of maintaining a vibrant club when there is so much competition on campus for student attention.
Student Affiliate members have also participated in IBC (Interbranch Council) events such as the IBC luncheon, the Commission on the Status of Women kick-off, and Equal Pay Day at the State Capitol. By the time this article is published, five of these young ladies will have attended NCCWSL (National Conference of College Women Student Leaders.)
As the college/university liaison, I very much look forward to hearing from the young women about their NCCWSL experiences. Hopefully, we as a branch will be able to build a deeper and more rewarding relationship with our area Student Affiliates.
