There are a number of open issues that AAUW NC will consider at its first winter meeting in several years:
All board members (officers, committee chairs and branch presidents) are asked to attend. If you will attend but did not go to the Fall Board Meeting, please call Joanne Hill, AAUW NC president, so she can bring you up to speed.
Resources for the Retreat
Reports from Officers and Committees
Board members who have reports to deliver at this meeting are strongly encouraged to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org so they can be posted. This meeting will have minimal time for the standard reports. Board members are, of course, encouraged to read these reports since some may very well affect the other discussions.
The time Friday evening may be somewhat unstructured. Groups are encouraged to meet to finalize presentations for Saturday or, for instance, iron out details for convention or other projects. If you want a meeting publicized, please use the e-mail list or send a note to email@example.com so it can be listed here.
The original hotel was near a Home Depot, and Mary Fran Schickedantz was willing to demonstrate making a stand for your banner (remember Convention 2002?) using new instructions. [See also old instructions, and the virtual parade of branch banners.] Please contact her if you are interested in this.
All Hands on Board. E-book from BoardSource. This is a quick read that reviews the responsibilities of the board in an all-volunteer organization. If you don't typically think about the board in these terms, it may help you prepare for the retreat.
Value of Membership. This open letter from a leader in another organization makes some points that have close parallels in AAUW. [Note that the dues he mentions are at least $135.]
