AAUW Annual Meeting
As specified in the AAUW Bylaws, AAUW holds an annual meeting each June. In odd-numbered years, the annual meeting takes place during the AAUW National Convention. In even-numbered years, the annual meeting is held during the June AAUW Board of Directors meeting, but no business is transacted at that time.
The 2016 AAUW annual meeting will be held in conjunction with the Board of Directors meeting on June 5 in Chicago, Illinois.
AAUW members voted to approve one change to the AAUW Bylaws during the 2015 AAUW national elections.
The last revision occurred in September 2014.
States, branches, and other AAUW-affiliated entities must develop and maintain bylaws that comply with AAUW policies and federal and state laws. AAUW provides model bylaws to help states and branches meet these requirements.
The resolutions include principles to guide study and action, as well as general statements of AAUW policy. An Index to AAUW Resolutions 1933-2011 sorts the resolutions by topic and lists the years in which AAUW referenced those subjects in its resolutions.
