AAUW National Election

The Results Are In!

Every two years, AAUW’s national election offers members the chance to share their opinions on proposed amendments to the AAUW Bylaws and Public Policy Program, as well as to select the members of the national AAUW Board of Directors. The 2015 election was a great success, with 12 percent of our members voting — more than double the 5 percent quorum required by our bylaws.

Here are the results of the 2015 AAUW National Election. For details about the AAUW Bylaws and Public Policy Program ballot issues, please see the AAUW National Election Voter Guide.

election
The 2015 AAUW National Election just ended, but your name could be on the ballot in 2017. If you’ve never considered running for the AAUW Board of Directors, you should! And now’s the time to start preparing.

Candidates tend to have leadership experience and expertise within and outside AAUW, so you can start honing and adding to your skills right now. You can also familiarize yourself with and get involved in AAUW programs and issues in your community. It often helps to have been a leader within your AAUW branch or state organization, though it’s not a requirement.

You can help guide AAUW’s amazing work to empower women and girls. Start thinking now about running for the AAUW Board of Directors in 2017! And if running isn’t right for you, encourage a friend to run.
