“President’s Message”

The deadline for registering for the convention will be here in a few days! I hope that you have made your arrangements to be with us in New Bern at the end of the month. This will be a fantastic opportunity to meet and connect with members from other branches across the state. Come and put faces with the names you have read about in the Tar Heel News.

Subject: [AAUWNC] LAFBreakfast

Hello all, I hope you are getting as excited as I am about the upcoming convention and LAF breakfast. It should be really interesting. This message is a reminder that you can still help LAF by being a sponsor ($25-99), supporter($100-249), or patron ($250)of the breakfast. You do not have to attend to do this and what a wonderful way to help LAF and the convention. Please try to send checks to me at 5902 Chester Street Wilmington, NC 28405 by March 17. Of course, all donations at any time will be welcome. Please pass this information on to other members of your branch that might not be on this list. Thanks and looking forward to seeing you all at convention. See you there! Lill Van Order AAUW-NC LAF Liaison
