One of the new features of this branch is that community groups (members who live near each other — perhaps in an area that had been served by a community-based branch) may band together and use AAUW’s name in their community. The Wake County group has done that to sponsor the Wake County Women’s Agenda Assembly on Jan. 29, 2011.
A dozen branch members and a couple of other AAUW members from Wake County attended the event, the last scheduled Women’s Agenda Assembly leading up to the 2011-2012 Legislative Session. [There still may be assemblies in New Hanover, Durham and Cleveland Counties. Check www.ncwu.org for announcements.]
But branch members participated in many other Women’s Agenda Assemblies across the state — from Buncombe County (Asheville), to a “Down East” assembly serving Craven, Carteret and Pamlico counties. If you participated, please post at least your first name and the name of the event here — and it’d be great if you’d add a few comments about what you took away from the event.
