AAUW National Election
It’s your AAUW, so your voice counts. It’s time to comment on and propose changes to the bylaws and Public Policy Program.
Welcome to the 2017 AAUW National Election page. Here you’ll find all the information you need to comment on or propose bylaws amendments, Public Policy Program changes, and resolutions. You can also nominate yourself to run for AAUW national office! And check back soon for candidate bios and — in June 2017 — the election results.
Respectful debate is a hallmark of AAUW’s storied history. Propose or comment on bylaws amendments to keep AAUW moving in the right direction.
The Public Policy Program drives AAUW’s efforts at the national, state, and local levels. Your comments are encouraged!
Something important to you but not covered in the bylaws? That’s what resolutions are for. Find out more.
