The mission of AAUW is:  “Advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.”

AAUW West Harris County Branch has for the last 25 years organized and presented Expanding Your Horizons, a one-day conference for middle school girls to inspire them in the pursuit of a career in the Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) fields. EYH has been this branch’s primary project in advancing the mission of AAUW.

There are still openings for EYH volunteers; you are encouraged to sign up!!

We also need to train the next Registrar, currently being coordinated by Hazel Chahar. This is the job description for the registrar:

Expanding Your Horizons Registrar:

The Registrar works in conjunction with the Treasurer to take the submitted registration forms and enter them into a database where assignments are made for the conference sessions. You will work with both Microsoft Excel and Access to complete the process. Data entry assistance is possible at the front end, with helpers working from their homes on their own computers via the internet. Files are exported to Excel, cleaned, checked and then imported into an Access database that has been loaded with speaker names, room assignments and session numbers. Once all registrants are loaded into Access, a program assigns sessions to each student and adult based on their desired sessions – if possible. Some manual review and changes are needed. Once the data appears complete, badges are printed and school packets are compiled to be distributed at the conference.

Please contact Lilian Care if you are interested in helping in any way. We need you!
