(September 2020) THE NEW CALIFORNIA CONNECTION! – Did you receive your copy from AAUW California by email? Our Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek branch is part of the AAUW California

The AAUW California Communications team is working hard to create an all-new digital publication that will get to you in a timely fashion. The AAUW California board would like to communicate directly with all members. You should receive the California Connection! before the 10th of each month, starting in August 2020. I believe you will find the information helpful and entertaining!

The California Perspective (postal newsletter) communication will be placed on hiatus for the time being.

Please check your email address in the Membership Services Database (MSD) on the national website. This will be the email address used to send the California Connection! If you need help verifying your email address is up-to-date, reach out to our membership committee or contact Julika Barrett in the AAUW California Office at 916-448-7795 or at and she can assist you.

In other news on the Communication front, both the National ( and California AAUW ( websites have been revamped. Starting this month, I will highlight various pages on these sites that I think you should check out.

I encourage you to take a peek at the webinar schedule page on the AAUW California site: – you may watch/listen to videoconferences that have already taken place or register for upcoming programs. This is an exciting new way to reach our members in times of distancing.
