Many thanks to all members who have already renewed for next year. To help you plan to renew.  See the following information from Finance Officer Pat Shores:

The preferred method to renew is online. 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!   An alternate method is to send your $91 check to Pat Shores. Write your check to AAUW; do not put B-C on the memo line.”

If you know that you will not be able to renew your membership for next year, please let Pat ( know, so you will not receive a reminder email or call from a membership committee member.
