Membership Information

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone. February is identified as the month of love and hearts. Based on the time of year and health concerns of the last two years, this would be a good time to show some love and kindness. Please check in on members that you know don’t get out much or that have been going through some health issues. Please pass their names along to me. We want to give support to members that may need some help.


We have another new member to welcome to West Harris County Branch.
Please note:     Karen McKibben Morris

I hope you attended the Holiday Dinner in December. Poupette Farnell and helpers did a fantastic job coordinating a great turn out of members. It was a spectacular start to the Holidays. Several of our new members from the August Coffee attended; their information was listed in December Newsletter.  We have two additional members to add this month.

West Harris County AAUW Presentation for the 2022 Membership Coffee Slideshow


AAUW-WHC is an organization of many hard working members.  Mary Andersen, Diana Tiberia, and Pam Doan have done a mammoth job of getting renewed and new members into the 2022-2023 Directory.  Many phone calls and emails to remind members to renew membership paid off.  Not only does West Harris County Branch want to maintain members, but we also want to grow and we have at the Membership Coffee. Thank you to those members that sponsored new members. We welcome new members anytime.

Please welcome these new members:

Just the facts

  • Membership is open to anyone holding an associate’s (or equivalent, e.g. RN), bachelor’s, or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university.
  • What type of membership is available?
  • National membership: Become a national member and connect through our website, plus enjoy special members-only online publications.
  • Branch members: Do you want to make a direct impact in your community? Consider joining a local or virtual branch of AAUW, or start one in your area.  Includes national membership.
  • Younger Women’s Task Force (YWTF): Designed by and for women in their 20s and 30s, YWTF offers young women an opportunity to take action on issues that matter most to them.
  • Student affiliation: If your college is already a partner member, you can be a student affiliate for free! If not, bring AAUW to your campus by starting an AAUW student organization!
  • How much are dues?
  • AAUW National membership annual dues are $49 (promotional and other rates may vary).
  • If you choose to join an AAUW affiliate, additional dues may apply.
  • Tax Deductibility: Because AAUW is a 501(c)(3) charitable membership organization, most of your national dues are tax deductible on your personal federal income tax return.
