Congratulations to our new slate of officers. Thank you for stepping up and giving your time and your individual talents to West Harris County. The new officers will be installed at the Branch Recognition Luncheon on June 3. The very next week, June 14-June 17, Anne Amador and I will leave for Washington D.C. for the AAUW National Convention. This venue offers a time and space for AAUW women from all over the country to come together and share ideas. It is so special to learn about the different approaches branches use for fund raising, community outreach programs, and AAUW policies. There are also special speakers, workshops, and panel discussions. Maybe most importantly is the sharing of a glass of wine with a member from New York about fund raising, a member from Honolulu who is concerned about public schools, a member from California who started the college campus camp experience for young girls, or the Houston member who tells about putting together a conference for over 400 middle school girls. It is a gift to yourself. Check it out at AAUW.org. Happy Spring.
Nancy Guilloud, WHC Branch President
