Branch Programs

Program Calendar

The Program Committee is putting together a schedule of programs for the upcoming year that is sure to have something to please every AAUW member. While you will find some events that have become a tradition, such as the annual International Women’s Day Program, others will be new ventures. We’ve tried to include a variety of topics, and a mix of educational offerings with plain old fun. For questions please contact Program VP Lilyen Mascellino, and watch for further postings! Please stay tuned for updates – details will be in the monthly Advocate!
