Dear AAUW MH Members,
Welcome to a brand-new year 2022-2023! I would like to thank Marian, the board, and branch leaders, for the outstanding leadership and dedication of these momentous past two years. I would also like to thank you, branch members, for your tireless commitment, effort, and contribution, without which we would not be the exceptional AAUW Morgan Hill branch that we are. Many of you are recognized in the greater community for contributions and service beyond our branch, and we couldn’t be more proud.
Our newly elected board, along with our appointed board members, advisory and operating committees members, and I look forward to carrying on our branch’s 40-year legacy and mission of gender equity. The new year begins on July 1, but we have already begun a smooth transition by planning summer activities as intended in our branch’s succession plan.
Our annual retreat is just days away on July 9. With the strategic plan that our branch has worked on since May for the National AAUW 5 Star program as the starting point, the retreat will allow the board to set our branch’s annual goals, engage in team building, and get everyone excited over the new year. All members are welcome to attend. (Details in the Sunday email.)
We hope you will stay engaged with our branch all year around. We need your participation to be successful in the important work we do and want you to feel that you belong.
