New Branch President takes the gavel
On July 1st our Branch Board of Directors changed to the newly elected members. Past President, Linda Pochter, (on the right) passed the gavel to President-elect Sally Hibbitts (on the left). Sally has many exciting ideas and directions that will take the Branch through the next membership year. Good luck to Sally … and many thanks to Linda for her inspiring leadership last year.
It’s Membership Renewal time again!
As a current member you should have received a letter a few weeks ago requesting that your membership dues for 2015-2016 be returned by June 15th.
Your annual dues have increased this year to $84.00 because of a $4.00 mandatory increase in state dues. The Branch keeps only $15.00 of the total amount for its operating expenses. An additional form allows you to add donations to AAUW Funds or Local Scholarships to your dues payment if you choose. The form is downloadable here.
If you wish to renew your membership on the web you will find directions on how to do this here.
This upcoming year promises to be an exciting one for members! The Branch will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in May 2016 and we want you to be part of the special events beginning with our Fall Membership breakfast and ending with a lovely champagne brunch at the North Ranch Country Club. In between, a variety of special programs will be organized along with our popular interest groups that so many of you enjoy. Renew NOW so you don’t miss any of this excitement.
Special Olympics in July
Our Branch will be assisting in the Host Town activities for the Special Olympics in July. Our role will be to support the athletes in their sport training by assuring transportation and accessibility to facilities that they need. Our volunteers are also invited to the Host Town events such as the barbeque and party at the Conejo Creek Park during the days the athletes and coaches will be in Thousand Oaks.
Also see our Past Events page to find out about the many exciting activities we have enjoyed in the last year.
