Membership Information

April showers bring May flowers, so it is said. For West Harris County Branch – AAUW that means Style Show benefiting Baker-Telfer funds. This year it will be at Talbots in Town & Country on Sunday, May 1st–IN PERSON!!! Please feel free to invite a prospective member to attend with you. What a deal for $20.00 a ticket! If a prospective member attends a meeting or other WHC event the prospective member can join West Harris County for a one-time-only reduced membership for 2022-2023 of $57.50.

Speaking of memberships. Renewal membership dues will be $91.00 for WHC in 2022-2023. National will be $67.00; State remains $13.00; and Local remains $11.00. We are asking members to wait until June to renew due to on-going technical database issues at the National office.

We will have another opportunity at the June 4th Scholarship Luncheon to spotlight the tremendous work that WHC Branch does in supporting graduates of three local school districts.  Three young ladies will be able to use scholarship funds to enter STEM programs at a college of their choice.  A very worthy endeavor in our mission to advance gender equity. Look for the Luncheon invitation in this newsletter for reservations and choice of meal.

Please continue to champion the work that National, State, and West Harris County Branch does to support equity for all women all over the world.  Please also continue to send me names of prospective members

Stay safe,
Carolyn Stoffel
