American Association of University Women
Greater Glens Falls Area - New York State
Serving the Warren County/Lake George region, Washington County and northern Saratoga County
The Adirondack Branch of AAUW was established in 1920. We have about 70 members with diverse educational and employment backgrounds who work together to fulfill the mission of AAUW. The local branch is one of about 30 branches which make up the New York State Division of AAUW.
AAUW (American Association of University Women), a national organization, was founded in 1881 to promote equity for women, education and self-development over the life span, and positive societal change. Membership in a local branch bestows guest member status in all other AAUW branches.

Membership in AAUW is open to all graduates who hold an associate or equivalent, baccalaureate, or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university. In principal and practice, AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership. Branch dues of $70.00 for the July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018 year include membership in the state and national organizations as well. Members receive the Branch newsletter, Adirondack Glimpses, the state AAUW's NYS FOCUS newsletter, and the national AAUW Outlook magazine.
Branch membership meetings are held monthly from September through June. Recent program topics have ranged from meeting local authors, to cancer prevention and survival, to a fundraising dessert theater.
Study and interest groups usually meet monthly on a variety of days and times. At present there are two Literature groups, a Gourmet group, and a Travel group.
New groups are formed based on members' requests and interests.
In addition to supporting national AAUW educational funding, the branch provides its own Adirondack Branch Memorial Scholarship. Through the years, contributions have been made to the fund to honor the memory of various members who have passed away. The scholarship is awarded annually to an area student presently attending an accredited college, working for a degree at the associates, bachelor or graduate level.
Recent issues of our branch newsletter, Adirondack Glimpses, are available on this web site.
Branch Board meetings are generally held monthly except for summer months; members are always welcome to attend. The Branch Bylaws are available on this web site as a pdf file (Adobe Reader).
