Welcome. This is the official Web site of the Tahoe Nevada branch of AAUW. Please explore the site to find out who we are, what we are doing, and how to join us.
The Tahoe Treasures Tour will be held Saturday, July 9, 2016. It is our biggest fundraising event of the year. The money we raise helps us fund two college scholarships for deserving young women at Incline High School. We hope to see you there for this wonderful event that showcases five amazing homes and gardens in Incline Village.
Also, our May 2016 newsletter is here.
Meetings: Except for the November meeting and the December Holiday Party, the Tahoe Nevada branch meets for dinner and a program on the third Wednesday of each month. The November meeting may be held on the second Wednesday to avoid conflict with Thanksgiving, and the Holiday Party is scheduled for the second Wednesday of December.. All other meetings through May are held on the third Wednesday, weather permitting. To make a dinner reservation, email Kelley Werner by the Sunday before the meeting.
Guest Speaker for April’s dinner meeting: This being the year of a presidential election, our thoughts turn to the role of women in public office. Mr. Fred Lokken, a professor of political science at Truckee Meadows Community College, will be speaking on this topic at our April 20th dinner meeting. Put aside any frustration you may have over the current campaigns, and come learn about women who have won political office locally, statewide and in Washington D.C.
