Public Policy Priorities
In addition to electing new leaders, 99% of California’s members voted a resounding YES to approve the Public Policy Priorities.
AAUW-California is fortunate to have talented and dedicated members who will step up to serve our state organization. The continuity of leadership is critical to the successful execution of our advocacy, programs and projects. New members provide our state leadership team with the important ingredients of energy, enthusiasm and engagement.
There are many ways to serve AAUW and our Mission; standing for election takes a special kind of member – one who is willing to lead. Thank you to all the candidates who ran in 2019, and continued success to our new board members!
