AAUW National Election
Will Your Name Be on the 2017 AAUW Ballot?
If you’ve never considered running for the AAUW Board of Directors, you should! And now’s the time to start preparing.
What’s it take?
- Some leadership experience inside or outside of AAUW. (Inside AAUW is very helpful!)
- A knowledge of AAUW’s programs and resources.
- Availability to travel to board meetings in Washington, D.C., a few times a year; state conventions as assigned; and the biennial convention.
- Participation in teleconference meetings such as board and committee calls, as well as with state presidents, as assigned.
- The desire to be part of changing the climate for women and girls everywhere!
You can help guide AAUW’s amazing work to empower women and girls. And if running isn’t right for you, encourage a friend.
