AAUW CA has now entered into legal litigation regarding its nonprofit classification status. The vote in January produced a small number of “no” votes. A general request was sent to the membership offering those who voted no an opportunity to reconsider their vote. The membership had until February 10th to reconsider switching their vote if they voted “no”. There are still four no votes on record.
Per California Corporate regulations just one no vote moves AAUW California into legal litigation to change its status from a Mutual Benefit to Public Benefit entity. The process will take time and will be expensive. The membership will be kept appraised of our progress on this issue through the monthly Board to Board Postings and postings at www.aauw-ca.org. Questions should be directed to [email protected]. Our thanks to those members who contacted us to verify their vote.
