Banquet – We’ll have a gala evening with NC Senator Kay Hagan, a strong advocate for issues aligned with our public policy goals, as our speaker.

Finally, if you’d like to get more involved in AAUW in North Carolina, do join us for the Sunday morning breakfast led by president-elect Millie Hoffler-Foushee.
