The AAUW Board of Directors voted in October to increase the Individual Member dues for the next three years.
So, dues for 2022 will be $62 for national (previous $59 plus $3 increase), $10 for state, and $22 for Ballwin-Chesterfield for a grand total of $94 which is $3 more than last year’s total. Fifty-nine dollars of the national dues will be tax deductible.
   For more information about the increase, see the October 30, 2020 Notice of Dues Adjustment document from Julia Brown, AAUW Board Chair.
