            Sue Cochran, Governance Chair,


As noted in earlier articles to branch leaders and branch members, AAUW California has a critical governance issue that must be addressed through an every member vote.

It is important that every member of AAUW CA cast a vote in favor of changing the non-profit status from Mutual Benefit to Public Benefit.

On September 10, 2017 the polls will open for AAUW California members to vote on a change to AAUW California’s  status from a Mutual Benefit to a Public Benefit entity.  The vote will be taken online through SurveyMonkey and all members with e-mail will receive an electronic notice of the vote and voting directions.  Those members for whom we do not have an e-mail address will receive a postcard, prior to the opening of the polls, with instructions on how to vote by phone or online. Members will have until October 1, 2017 to cast their votes electronically or by phone.

A sample ballot and more detailed information is available on the AAUW CA website and in the Fall Administrative Packet that will be mailed to each branch in September.  Please share this information with your branch membership.

QUESTIONS?  Any questions should be directed to  The period for questions/discussion will be open until midnight September 9th, prior to the commencement of voting of September 10th.
