Minutes for the 2021 Annual Meeting

The branch met via Zoom on June 14, 2021 to confirm the election of a new board and handle other issues.

The previous annual meeting was 2018. In 2019, the branch hosted a celebration at the AAUW NC conference in honor of its 10th anniversary, but did not actually call a meeting to order. In 2020, when the AAUW NC went virtual, we did not find a way to meet.

Thanks to all who attended.

These minutes have been reviewed by a reading committee and corrected with their comments.

Minutes for 2018 Annual Meeting

There was no branch meeting at the 2019 meeting of AAUW of North Carolina. Instead we hosted a celebration of our 10th anniversary and invited all the attendees.

There was no meeting in 2020 due to pandemic restrictions.

So the 2018 minutes were not approved until the 2021 meeting. They are now posted here after corrections:
