     The AAUW Board of Directors voted in October to increase the individual member dues over the next three years. 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.
The AAUW year begins anew on July 1, 2021, thus  current memberships expire on June 30. The preferred method to renew is online. B-C members will each receive a personalized renewal email on March 16 from 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 $94 check to Pat Shores. Write your check to AAUW.
The finance officer and the membership vice presidents are offering an early dues payment incentive. Members who renew from March 16−April 30 will get three chances to win a $30 Panera gift card. Members who renew from May 1−31 will get two chances to win the gift card. Members who renew from June 1−30 will have one chance to win.
     The preferred method to renew is online.  If you miss the above mentioned email, just go to, and type “renew my membership” in the Search window.  Be sure to indicate that you are renewing as a member of a branch!
And finally, an alternate method of renewal is to simply send your $94 check to Pat Shores. Write your check to AAUW; do not put B-C on the memo line.
