AAUW NC President Jane Terwillegar and Membership VP Kathy Pearre have been traveling the state, talking to branch representatives about AAUW NC and branch plans. It’s been a great sharing of information. Here are the AAUW NC documents that branches may wish to share with members who weren’t able to attend.
