The purpose of AAUW is to advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy

Welcome New/Potential Members!

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?

We meet quarterly on Tuesday evenings.  We do not meet in June, July, or August.  Most of our meetings include a social and a dinner.  One meeting is held via Zoom.  

How do I make a reservation?

You will receive an email ten days prior to when reservations are due. RSVPs are made by responding to the email. 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 payfor 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.  The treasurer will collect the money. 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 usually have a social half hour before the dinner starts, beginning at 5:30 p.m.  Dinner is served at 6:00 and the presentation begins at 6:45. The programs focus on our mission. 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.

Who do I contact about joining?

Contact Jan Van Gasse, branch co-president, at or via phone at 906-396-2747.
