AAUW JACKSONVILLE REGIONAL BRANCH MARCH 2009 NEWSLETTER

PRESIDENTS’ MESSAGE: We all enjoyed hearing Dr. Julia Morrow from East Carolina University talk about her application for a grant from AAUW to fund a speech pathology camp for children. She is also interested in organizing a branch of AAUW in Greenville. We offered our support in these endeavors. We also invited Dr. Morrow to join us at convention at Wrightsville Beach to learn more about the overall AAUW picture.

Speaking of convention, please note the information below and put it on your calendar. It will be here in no time. See you there!

JoAnn, Co-President

OUR NEXT MEETING: There will be no March branch meeting due to convention. Please plan to attend convention in Wrightsville Beach on March 27. This one-day convention culminates with a gala banquet to celebrate 100 years of AAUW in North Carolina.
