Mission Based Program Suggestions

In April 2008 Diane Telford, State Program Chair, printed a booklet with the above title based on a collection of programs presented at Vermont branch meetings. A number of programs listed in this booklet had already been replicated by other Vermont branches or had sparked ideas for a different but related program.

To make the information available to additional Vermont members, the contents of the original booklet is given below. The information has been divided into a number of pages by subject category so that a portion can be printed easily. Additional mission based programs will be added in the future.

In order to guard the privacy of AAUW members, the email addresses of contacts are not included in this website version. Email addresses and telephone numbers may be obtained from the state leadership directory (branch presidents and state officers have a copy) or from another member of the branch that held the program.
