The Madison branch participates in and sponsors a number of activities.

  • For the broader community, these activities include spelling bees, Equal Pay Day events, voter registration drives, and local election candidate forums.
  • We collaborate with others to write grants to support regional programming and opportunities for women and young girls relevant to current AAUW initiatives.
  • We contribute annually to the AAUW-DKG endowment to sponsor a DSU student scholarship.
  • We have fun. At Christmas we forgo the business meeting and have a party that includes spouses and friends of members. Each spring, the branch has a “Progressive Dinner,” with each course taking place at a different member’s home.
