Study Groups

What are Study Groups?
Study groups provide an opportunity for members to grow intellectually and creatively, broaden their involvement in topics of interest, become agents for intelligent community action and meet people who share similar interests. Please note that anyone is always welcome to attend any of these groups – no strings attached! Drop in, and bring a friend, to experience fellowship and the pleasures of lifelong learning.

AAUW In Action (AIA) …

AAUW in Action is a study group that serves as a springboard for community service activities for our branch that promote AAUW’s mission.

Help needed for International Women’s Day Panel:
We could use a couple of volunteers on Thursday, March 8th for the Annual International Women’s Day Panel. We are looking for 2 AAUW volunteers to help that night: 1 to hold up the timing cards so panelists know how much time they have left and 1 to hand out programs as people arrive. Please let Lois Gilbert know if you can help! UWL Centenntial Hall. 5pm-7:30pm
Watch for our branch-sponsored daily blurbs in the La Crosse Tribune
every day in March, featuring women who personify the Women’s History Month theme of NEVERTHELESS SHE PERSISTED: Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. Thank you to Lois Gilbert who has provided these entries to the Tribune for many years!
Please see the newsletter for information about how you can purchase a NEVERTHELESS SHE PERSISTED t-shirt!
The WINGS Workshop,
scheduled for April, has been postponed until fall. More info with details will be in the newsletter as plans develop.
