CANCELLED April 17-19, 2020 – Vancouver, Washington
The state boards of Washington and Oregon have agreed that the best course of action is to either postpone our joint convention to a joint convention/leadership meeting in August or separate August events. We don’t want to put anyone’s health at risk and want to follow the recommendations of the state health department and CDC. All members will be informed of the final decision.
Anyone who has already registered will receive a refund, minus a nominal handling fee.
Information and materials for a mail-in election will be sent to branch presidents and other delegates.
This meeting would have been be a record breaking important regional meeting inviting AAUW’ers from Idaho, Alaska, and Hawaii. We also invited AAUW members from across the US. The program team is already working on the events. At the Heathman Lodge.
We will recognize the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage at Saturday’s dinner. Bring your suffrage white to wear that evening. Judith Entwistle, Bellingham branch, has a terrific outfit that includes purple and gold as well as white. There will also be a program focused on women’s history. Other speakers are still being negotiated.
Time to plan the AAUW Funds fundraiser. This year’s proceeds will benefit AAUW’s Greatest Needs Fund. The activity will feature a basket raffle and a selection of gift cards for use throughout the region.
Details and registration information will be available early in 2020. We will have an early-bird discount again this year
