The purpose of AAUW is to advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy
Who is invited to join AAUW?
Typically women bearing either a two- or four-year degree are invited to join AAUW, but AAUW is not gender-specific
How often do we meet?
Our meetings typically take place on the fourth Tuesday of every month. We do not meet in June, July or August. The December meeting is held on the second week of the month. Most of our meetings include a social and a dinner.
How do I make a reservation?
You will receive an email ten days prior to when reservations are due. Information will also be available on the website. RSVPs will be done by clicking a link in the email or on the website. If you prefer, we can mail the invitation to you as well.
What if I order a dinner and can’t make the meeting?
Your dinner will not be put to waste, but you will be expected to pay for it as the meal was pre-ordered and AAUW will be billed.
How do I check in and pay for my meal the night of the meeting?
You will pay via cash or check at the door when you arrive at the event. Checks are made payable to AAUW. You may also pay by cash. If we are at the Chippewa Club, the treasurer will also have a drink price list and you will purchase your drink tickets from her.
How are dinner meetings structured?
We have a social half hour before the dinner starts. Dinner is served and the presentation begins. It varies in content, but centers around women and community events. The program usually lasts about 30-45 minutes and is usually followed by important announcements, with the goal of ending all activities by 8:00 p.m.
What other events does the Iron Mountain/Kingsford branch sponsor?
The Candidates’ Forum is held in election years and is designed to help create more awareness of positions of candidates and major issues for the community. The Speech Trek competition is a speech contest for local high school students on an assigned topic. The Book Sale is a major contributor to the scholarship fund. We also have social events only, which are not dinner meetings. Social events include a Fundraiser at Solberg’s.
