DO YOU WANT TO JOIN AAUW?  Please read the information below…….
We’re listening . . .

Each year we invite by mail or email our Iowa National AAUW members to pay dues of $10 and join AAUW Iowa.
This year we are calling as many of you as possible to listen to you. We want to know how we can better serve you and let you know you are not alone supporting women and the mission of AAUW to change the climate for women and girls.
The more people we know each other and the area you live, the better we can work together. We hope this is just the beginning. We hope more of us will have more meaningful conversations in the future and also continue the relationships we are starting now on the phone. We hope some of you will find ways to become more involved maybe serving on the phone committee or even the state board or discovering there is a way to work together toward a need in your area even though there may not be a local branch.
We want you to know that what you think is important. We want to hear what is important to you in your community and in the state legislature. We want to hear what you want for your daughters and granddaughter growing up in Iowa.
We may only ask you the questions on the membership form as we talk, but we want to listen to whatever you want to tell us on the phone or in the form as you submit your dues.
I hope you enjoy our phone calls and that it helps us help each other as we continue to move AAUW’s mission forward and viewing you state membership as a real state “branch.”
Feel free to call or contact me. Elaine Kresse AAUW Iowa Membership VP, elainekresse2@gmail.com or 563-320-3325.
