Who can become a member?

Nationally membership is open to anyone who has earned an associate, baccalaureate or higher degree from an accredited college or university or anyone working toward their first baccalaureate degree.

Branch Membership Categories:

    • Full Member – anyone who has earned an associate, baccalaureate or higher degree from an accredited college or university. Full members can hold office, chair committees and have full association voting rights.
    • Student Affiliate – anyone who is working toward a first baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. Student affiliates cannot hold office but can chair committees.
    • Supporter – Our branch has a special, local membership category, “Supporters”, for those women who share our vision and goals but do not have the educational requirements for full membership. Our local supporters cannot be branch officers but can be committee chairs and thus serve on our branch board as non-voting members.

About how much does membership cost?

    • Full Member – $84 (Dues includes $62 dues to National, $12 dues to State and $10 for Branch.) Note: $59 of national dues is tax-deductible.
    • Student Affiliate – $18.81 (National dues only; state and branch dues are waived. The applicant must be working on the first undergraduate degree.)
    • Supporter – $15 (Branch only; no degree)

Any Discounts or Special Offers?

AAUW offers a Shape The Future (STF) discount for New Membership. People who join our branch at one of our “public events / programs”, sign our guest book, and pay on that day are eligible for a discount of ONE HALF OFF the national dues. AAUW members who have lapsed for more than 2 years are also eligible for a STF discount when re-joining at a public event.

Full membership with a STF discount would be $53 ($31 for national dues plus $12 for state and $10 branch dues)!
