Summer Gathering & Virtual Picnic
Thursday, July 9 at 11 a.m.
Branch members are invited to the AAUW Ballwin-Chesterfield first ever virtual gathering via Zoom™. Please join us from the comfort of your own home for our summer meeting. Find out what exciting things are planned for the year, if and when we can meet in person, and opportunities for ways to stay connected when we are sheltered in place.
Never used Zoom™ before and want to learn how? Contact Sage Tabor before July 1 and a branch member Zoom™ trainer will get in touch with you by phone to get you started.
All branch members will receive an email with the Zoom™ invitation and information sometime after July 1.
Don’t Forget To Renew Your Membership!
The AAUW year begins anew on July 1, 2020, thus your current membership expires on June 30. The national annual dues are $59. AAUW MO dues are $10 and Ballwin-Chesterfield branch dues are $22, which totals $91 for the upcoming year. Fifty-six dollars of the national dues are tax deductible.
The preferred method to renew is online. If you do not renew by June 30, B-C members will receive a personalized email on July 16 and August 16 from firstname.lastname@example.org. Open the message and click on “click here to renew”. With one click, pay dues with your credit card. It’s simple, safe, and efficient. The alternate method is to send your $91 check to Pat Shores. Write your check to AAUW B-C.
The Finance Officer and the Membership VPs are offering an early dues payment incentive. Members who renew from June 1 to June 30 will have one chance to win a Panera gift card.
More than half our members have paid their dues early this year. This is very much appreciated by the Membership Chairs and the Finance Officer because it helps us know who is returning to the branch in time to prepare for the new year.
Alternatively, send a $91 check to Pat Shores for next year’s dues. Address is in the Directory.
Buy Books– Used Book Sale At Every Meeting – CLOSED
All proceeds will go to Dollars for Scholars. Donate your books, puzzles, CD’s, & DVD’s to be sold at January – April meetings. Unsold books will be sold to local used book stores. Last year the Used Book Sale earned over $1,300 thanks to your generosity in donating and buying books. Let’s do it again! You can clean your bookshelves, help a worthy cause, and get some bargains in good books.
