Membership Information


It has been an honor to serve as Membership Vice President for the last two years. I have enjoyed getting to know a large number of the West Harris County Branch members and have come to understand what a valuable organization we have in our AAUW branch. As you may know, your prospective member recommendations are our primary source of enhancing the membership. You will soon be asked to submit prospective member names to Jo Glidewell, our incoming Membership VP. Please spend some time thinking of suitable names that you would like to give to Jo. Your prospective member recommendations will be invited to our August Membership Coffee which will be held on Saturday morning, August 25, 2018. Please make plans to attend the Coffee with your prospective members.
