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.

Holiday Bazaar Flyer revisedOur next upcoming special event is on December 5th from 10:00-4:00.  We will hold the Holiday Bazaar in conjunction with the Incline High School Boosters.  We are also supporting an Art Contest for the high school students with cash prizes going to the top four contestants.  Volunteers are needed!

Also, our November 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 November’s Dinner Meeting (November 18th)  Ms. Peggy Martin, Community Development Director, will be our guest speaker at our next dinner meeting.  Please join us and learn more about Big Brothers and Sisters and how their efforts are having a powerful and positive impact in Nevada.  Research indicates that mentoring is successful in producing positive outcomes for children and youth at risk of failing or engaging in harmful behaviors.  The mission for Big Brothers and Sisters of Northern Nevada is to “provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better – forever!”
