AAUW NC Summer 2002 Booklet: Selling AAUW

There weren't enough leftover booklets to make sure each branch got a copy of the booklet used at last year's summer leadership conference. The information is on the web site, but if you want your own copy of the booklet (all the information is still valid) you may order it with your registration for $3.00. Consider ordering extra copies for your new branch officers. Contact Nancy Shoemaker, shoemaker@acm.org for more information.
