When you are revising your bylaws, you need to know:
Holly Kearl's recent visit in California was a whirlwind as she went to three areas in one weekend: Napa, Berkeley and San Jose. I followed her from Berkeley to San Jose. Holly's presentation on harassment and bullying was both informational and insightful. It was informed by some brilliant research on the part of AAUW and its expert team.
The winners of the 2012 AAUW art contest have been announced and three of them are from California branches. All the winning art will be featured on AAUW note cards that will be sent to members this Spring.

How many of us have children who are graduating from college this year? My daughter graduated in June from Cal State East Bay, and I gave her the gift of AAUW membership. If our children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews don't join, how can we expect everyone else to join?
The AAUW CA Board of Directors has agreed to wave the California 2010-2011 state dues for these new members. If the new member decides to join a branch, she will only need to pay the branch dues.
Please give a gift to new grads.
