If you are new to your leadership role in your branch, this workshop is meant for you!!  If you are new to AAUW or just newly retired and looking for a way to make a difference, this Summer Leadership Meeting (SLM) is meant for you!!  If you just want to explore a new area of Virginia and combine a “mini” vacation with good fellowship and stimulating conversation and ideas, this workshop is meant for you!!  We hope that each branch will be represented by at least one member, but there is no limit on the number of members that can be sent from one branch.  Remember that AAUW leadership can be contributed in our community in many ways.

Meeting registration deadline is July 15.  Hotel rates good through July 5.

Learn to negotiate your salary NOW!

Why does it matter?

The pay gap has lifelong financial effects that grow over time, from the ability to pay for education and childcare to saving for retirement, impacting women in nearly every profession. The Work Smart program teaches women at all stages of their career how to negotiate their pay, resulting in improved financial futures for themselves and their families.

Share with everyone you know! 

Take it yourself to be able to talk about it!
