We are joined in our commitment to achieve quality education for women and girls over the life span and to promote equity for women and girls in all walks of life. To achieve these goals, we are active in our communities and lobby Members of Congress and the Vermont Legislature on issues related to equity and education for women.
AAUW of Vermont has four active local branches with a total membership of approximately 160. You can obtain more information about our branches in the Vermont Branches section of this site. Many AAUW events are open to the public and cover a wide variety of interests.
We also have approximately 150 national members of AAUW living within our state who are not associated with a branch. All national members are welcome to attend state or branch meetings and to work with us in our programming and lobbying efforts. To join AAUW please contact an AAUW member within your area or telephone or email a branch contact listed on the Vermont Branches page of this site.
For a brief account of the history and accomplishments of
AAUW of Vermont please click the link below. This short speech was given at the celebration of our 90th birthday in 2010.
During the 2013 - 2014 fiscal year, AAUW of Vermont members down-sized and streamlined the state organization. We unanimously accepted a proposal for restructuring AAUW of Vermont developed by state leaders and elected a steering committee of three members. Bylaws for the restructured organization were written with the assistance of national AAUW staff and are consistent with Vermont Statues as well as National AAUW Bylaws.
The three steering committee members took office on July 1, 2014 and will administer the operational, legal, and fiduciary responsibilities of AAUW of Vermont until June 30, 2016.
