Fall Program Kick-Off

Fall Program Kick-Off is Happening Virtually on Saturday, Sept. 11 By Kim Rutledge and Karen Burley

Welcome to Fall at AAUW Sacramento Branch! We are committed to bringing our branch membership a robust array of programs in a virtual format, and hopefully some in-person events as well.

The branch program year starts on Saturday, September 11, with the virtual AAUW Branch Year Kick-Off from 10 am to Noon. This year we will have a joint session with our sister branch Citrus Heights American River (CHAR). We will highlight all that has been happening with Tech Trek, followed by planned programs, Interest Groups, and outreach programs for each branch.

Invite a friend who may be interested in joining our branch and log on to Zoom to learn what the coming year has in store. Registration information for this free event is available on Eventbrite by clicking here. (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/aauw-sacramento-branch-year-kick-off-tickets-168649706813 ) A Zoom link will be emailed to all registered members 2 days prior to the event. Please mark your calendars! This event is open to the public, so people who join on the 11th can join at a reduced rate.

As we look to December and beyond, we will assess whether or not we can return to monthly in-person branch events. Regardless of where we do our programming for the coming year, we promise to bring timely, compelling monthly programs to branch members. We look forward to seeing you on Zoom in September!
