  • Proposal #1 to create staggered board terms passed. Staggered terms will affect elected and appointed AAUW Board members starting terms in 2019. More information will be available during the application and election periods in the coming year, and the AAUW Governance Committee will work closely with the AAUW Nominating Committee and staff to ensure a smooth transition.
  • Proposal #2 to allow non-AAUW member eligibility to Board did not meet the percentage required to pass.
  • Proposal #3 to remove the educational requirement to AAUW membership did not meet the percentage required to pass.

American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a nationwide network of more than 170,000 members and supporters, 1,000 branches, and 800 college/university institution partners.

Located in Florida’s northeast coast, the Flagler County Branch draws members from throughout Flagler County and serves the communities of Palm Coast, Flagler Beach and Bunnell.

For 130 years, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political. Our commitment to our mission is reflected in all aspects of our work.

AAUW’s Mission
AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

AAUW’s Value Promise
By joining AAUW, you belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women and girls have a fair chance.

 

The words “it’s a girl!” radiate excitement about a world of possibilities ahead — but as we see in this video, a little girl’s dreams are often limited by the words “if” and “only.”

AAUW works to change the climate for women and girls!
