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.  Our mission aligns with that of AAUW National: to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education and philanthropy.

We now have a calendar on the site for our leaders to post our events and meetings.  Also, click here to read our December 2018 newsletter.

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 at the Parasol building (DW Reynolds Center) on Incline Way. The November meeting may be held on the second Wednesday to avoid conflict with Thanksgiving, and the December meeting date TBD. All other meetings through May are held on the third Wednesday, weather permitting. To make a dinner reservation, email Pamela Sheldon (Pamelasheldon961@yahoo.com)  by the Friday before the meeting. We are currently seeking an experienced caterer to provide a buffet dinner consisting of soup and/or salad, main, side dishes and dessert. We typically have 60 to 70 attendees. Contact Judy Miller at president@tahoenvaauw.org for more details.

Activities: Tahoe Nevada has active special interest groups such as the Outdoor Enthusiasts and the Book Group, To find out how to participate in those activities, click on the special-interest-group link on the right.
