Adirondack Branch
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


  Branch banner 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 the American Association of University Women. The local branch is one of more than 40 branches which make up the New York State Division of AAUW.

The American Association of University Women (AAUW), 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.

Adirondack Branch activities include monthly membership program meetings and several study and interest groups.

Recent issues of our branch newsletter, Adirondack Glimpses, are on this site. The quarterly newsletter of the New York State AAUW, NYS Focus, is online, as well as the national AAUW Outlook magazine.
