e-newsletter v2009.01

FROM THE PRESIDENT
Doris Bernhlohr

I want to take this opportunity to invite all of you to Wilmington on March 27, 2009 for the AAUW NC Convention.  The Wilmington Branch will be our hosts and I can guarantee you an informative and fun time.  Watch for the next issue of the Tar Heel News for all the details.  For those of you who have never been to a state convention before I hope you will join us.

I am looking for a volunteer to be a voting delegate at the state convention.  If you are going to be present in Wilmington on March 27 and are willing to be a delegate please notify me.  Our entire membership will need to have time to vote on this delegate selection.  Watch for a ballot to select a delegate.

With Congress and the NC Legislature now in session many issues important to all of us will be on their agendas.  Please stay in touch with your legislators in both Raleigh and Washington and let them hear from you. This also keeps you up to date with AAUW priority issues.   If you need information about what is going on please refer to the following website:
