On Nov. 10 we hosted a very interesting program on women’s politics. Just two days after the emotional election it was uplifting to come together with other like-minded women and discuss how far we’ve come. A big thank you to our speaker Sarah Case and to Barbara Levi for organizing the event.
As I’m sure many of you have, I’ve been reading the latest articles on the AAUW National website. The information on election results and where to go from here are encouraging, I’m excited about the news on the national convention in Washington DC coming up in June and I always enjoy the annual gift giving guide for “Fearless Feminists!” If you haven’t done so in awhile, I encourage you to go on the site and take a look.
I’m looking forward to our upcoming programs next year. On Jan. 10 we have a program featuring Elizabeth Scharpf, the founder SHE (see the flyer above). Save the date for our Interbranch Luncheon on Feb 25 in Santa Maria. And tickets will be going on sale soon for the Empowered Woman Luncheon on March 8. Our special guest speaker is Amazing Race winner and KEYT reporter, Kelsey Gerckens – you won’t want to miss it!
Looking forward to a great year ahead and I wish you all a very happy holiday season and prosperous new year!
