The AAUW National Board of Directors has voted to put three proposals for bylaws amendments before the membership for a vote this spring. The proposed amendments address creating three-year staggered board terms, opening board service to those outside of the AAUW membership, and eliminating the degree requirement for membership. While rationale and details for each proposed amendment can be found on the AAUW website, the overarching motivation for these changes is to uphold and advance AAUW’s mission and ensure optimal execution at the national board level.
This video of Julia Brown, AAUW Board Chair, and Kimberly Churches, AAUW CEO provide insight to the rationale for the proposed changes as well as answer common questions.
