Great Decisions

This is an eight week program of the Foreign Policy Association, beginning in February, in which participants discuss a U.S. foreign policy issue and submit an opinion ballot for national tabulation. We have offered this program in our community since 1973 and are proud to have the longest running association with this program as an AAUW branch in the United Sates. We have three sessions, morning and evening on Monday and Tuesday at 1 pm in Slidell. The eight sessions begin weekly in late February. Sessions will be coordinated by Martha Gonzalez, Marion Kennedy, and Eileen deHaro.

Book Review Groups (Members Only)

Our book groups vote on a selection of books to review each year. Each member is urged to suggest books resulting in a very diverse reading program each year (see above for current book list). The Wednesday book group is perfect for those with flexible schedules while the Saturday group better meets the needs of working members.

How can we best serve you?

Contact Us. We need your ideas for how our branch can best serve you. Let us (our Membership VP or any member of the board) know if you are interested in any other activities beyond Great Decisions, and our very popular book review groups. Also let us know if you would like to chair or host any new interest group.

Spread The Word!
