National Election

Every Voice Matters

AAUW members play an important role in shaping the future for women and girls by choosing the organization’s leaders and policy priorities.

National Election 2021

It’s your AAUW, and your voice counts. It’s time to comment on and propose changes to the AAUW bylaws and Public Policy Priorities.

This spring AAUW members will be asked to vote on amendments to the Public Policy Priorities and bylaws, in addition to electing members to the national Board of Directors. Every AAUW member has the right to comment on proposed changes to the bylaws or Public Policy Priorities before they are put to the membership for a vote.

Here you’ll find all the information you need to comment on proposed bylaws and Public Policy Priorities changes or propose your own changes. Comments and proposed amendments can be submitted until February 5, 2021 at 5:00 pm ET.
