State Programs replacing District Meetings in 2017-2018

For 2017-2018 the State Board has made the decision to not offer District Meetings as we typically do in the Fall. Instead we are going to concentrate on engaging branches across the state to participate in one of the State Programs – Deeper in Debt: Women and Student Debt and Draw the Lines PA. See the information on these State Programs below.

State Programs

AAUW-PA is offering branches the opportunity to collaborate with state board members to plan and implement one or two programs we think will be of broad appeal in their communities with the hope that as community members learn about AAUW, they will consider joining a local branch.

The two programs are “Draw the Lines PA” and “Deeper in Debt: Women and Student Loans”, the new AAUW research report. A branch or group of nearby branches can request to offer one or both programs by filling out the “State Program Request Form” provided under the “State Programs” tab. After submitting your request, a board member will contact you to further discuss the request. The state has set aside some funding to offer to the branches to implement these community programs.
