There’s still time; don’t miss this wonderful weekend! The registration deadline is March 30, 2012.Convention registration, hotel registration, and complete information packet are available at AAUW-NYS.org or from your branch president. It was also sent by email to those of you who receive the AAUW-NYS Focus by email. You must register separately for the convention and for the hotel. This year’s theme, “In Their Footsteps”, will highlight the contributions of New York State women to the women’s rights movement. Guest speakers will include Congresswoman Louise Slaughter, AAUW Lobby Corps Chair Kathy Kelm, and Co-founder of 34 Million Friends of the United Nations Population Fund Jane Roberts. We’ll also hear speakers on the Women’s History Trail and 2020:Project Women, as well as participating in two sessions of workshops on related topics.
Friday arrivals will be able to take a tour of the Susan B. Anthony House. There will be opportunities to hear about and influence AAUW’s State, National, and District policies; to interact with other members and branch officers from around the state; and to enjoy military bridge, walking, swimming, yoga, and a theatrical presentation of “Momoirs” by the Bath Branch. I hope to meet many of you there.
