Monthly Meetings

AAUW Carlisle takes great care to offer a wide variety of provocative, interesting and mission-based programming at our monthly Branch meetings.  Parking for Branch meetings held in the Holland Union Building of Dickinson College is often available on West Louther Street and in the lot adjacent to the Anita Tuvin Schlecter Auditorium.   The guest speaker presentation is followed by a brief business meeting and social time with light refreshments.   The public is  always welcome.
