The AAUW CA Branch Resource Connection (formerly Leader On Loan) Program is designed to bring state AAUW leaders to branch and IBC meetings, events and programs.
The state leadership team members have a broad spectrum of expertise and can assist branches and IBCs that are working to strengthen their internal organization and AAUW’s presence in their communities.
AAUW CA Branch Resource Connection speakers can provide education for branch/IBC leadership and suggest proven ways to overcome common challenges such as growing and retaining membership, developing branch leaders, implementing AAUW-relevant programs and better understanding the breadth and scope of AAUW’s mission.
