The Tar Heel Branch would like to welcome the new members who joined us over the summer:
Grace Knechtel is a long-time AAUW member who has served on the boards of both AAUW NC and AAUW NYS. She is a current member of the Raleigh/Wake County branch and joins the Tar Heel Branch as her second branch. See reasons why members of other branches join the Tar Heel Branch.
Joanne Woodard is the college/university representative for AAUW for NC State University. She took advantage of the AAUW NC and branch policies of offering state/branch affiliation to C/U reps for no additional dues. She is also in charge of the e-student affiliate program for NCSU, and any students who join that way may also affiliate with the branch (and get access to branch networking tools) for no additional fee.
Kathleen Hilton is on the faculty at UNC Pembroke, a former member of the AAUW UNC Pembroke branch who maintained her membership in the AAUW national organization as a member-at-large. With Rose Stremlau, she hopes to revive the AAUW presence on that campus, but for now, she is more tightly connected to AAUW NC.
Branch members can get contact information for each other from the branch roster at http://www.aauwnc.org’s “member services database.” More personal introductions are encouraged on the branch e-mail list.
