State Public Policy Chair Manual
It’s an exciting time to be an AAUW state public policy chair (SPPC) — it seems like one of our priority issues is in the news every day, and there’s a midterm election coming up in November 2014! SPPCs are instrumental in organizing AAUW members to have an impact at the local, state, and federal levels.
This manual is for AAUW members serving as SPPCs. It provides an overview of the state public policy chair role, the basics of public policy and advocacy, and sample tactics to take action. It also includes contact information for AAUW policy staff, a comprehensive list of advocacy how-to resources, and excerpts of relevant AAUW board policies.
We’ve also created a manual for branch public policy chairs. Check it out, and good luck with your advocacy plans this year!
