   At AAUW National Convention, we take your learning seriously. Through more than 25 workshops plus pre-con activities, Programs That Work roundtables, and Daily Dialogues, attendees get to customize their convention experience and grow as leaders.
But with so many great activities on the docket, even the busiest attendees are bound to miss some information. That’s why we’ve gathered the presentations, worksheets, and other materials from the workshops to help you learn from the sessions you missed — and pass on the resources you found most helpful to a friend.
And remember, we have hundreds of additional materials online that we update year-round to help you organize and recruit members; check out the Resource section of the AAUW website to learn more.
