Power to the Polls Georgia – January 20th

Click here for some information regarding an event this Saturday, January 20th. Power to the Polls is a follow-up event on the women’s march that many of our AAUW members participated in last year. Debbie Karvey will be working at the ERA table, and we appreciate her sharing this empowering event with us!

Jingle, Mingle, and Mix Holiday Party!

The AAUW Atlanta Branch will hold its annual holiday celebration on Sunday, December 3, from 3 to 5 pm at the home of Mary and Darwin Womack. There will be a silent auction, plenty of delicious food, and lots of time to visit with members and their guests. National scholarship winners have also been invited, and hearing about their research is always exciting!

The Board will meet at 2:15 prior to the party. There will also be a short but important business meeting as part of our gathering.

Please plan to attend–it won’t be the same without you!

Join Us for the October Meeting: Women in Politics

The October Branch meeting will be held at the Ansley Golf Club (196 Montgomery Ferry Drive, Atlanta, 30309) on Saturday, October 28, from 10 am to 12 pm. This meeting will provide members the opportunity to hear from a representative of the Georgia Budget and Policy Institute plus two Atlanta mayoral candidates, Mary Norwood and Cathy Woolard. (Other candidates were invited but unable to participate.)

Because AAUW is a non-partisan organization, we hope this meeting will inform members and their guests about experiences of these speakers as women in politics and their views on public policy issues affecting women and girls.

The menu features sun-dried tomato and feta quiche, asparagus, and parmesan-crusted tomatoes; cost of the brunch is $18.00 per person. Please respond to the evite or notify hospitality@aauwatlanta.org by Monday, October 23. See you there!
