Membership Happenings

Membership Happenings By Gloria Yost, Vicky Lovell

Are you in the loop?
Do you know what different activities are happening?
Did you accidentally unsubscribe to AAUW Sacramento?
Do you know who to contact?

Being in the “know” is a useful way to take advantage of all the opportunities your AAUW Sacramento membership has to offer, and to get the most value from your dues dollars.

  • Our newsletter Capital Ideas is our primary way of communicating important branch information, so we hope you read each one thoroughly!  Watch for them close to the end of each month. When you get an “AAUW Sacramento” email, it’s branch news!!
  • Eblasts are sent out multiple times with details before our branch events. Read them, mark your calendars, forward them as invitations to friends and more. Note if an RSVP is needed.
  • Check our website,, to read the Membership Resource Handbook and learn more about all our various activities.
  • Open California Connections, the AAUW CA eblast – a quick and often humorous read.
