The Albany Branch was chartered on December 10, 1932, and has been continuously active since then. We currently have 36 members with the majority from Albany and several from surrounding areas.  If you’re interested in joining our branch, please contact Membership Chair Sue Stein.

Education
Our College/University Partner is Linn-Benton Community College. We often sponsor tables at campus events to let students know what AAUW can offer them.  We also fund scholarships and contribute non-perishable food items to LBCC’s food pantry for students facing food insecurity.

 

 

Public Policy
We co-sponsor community forums  with the League of Women Voters on candidates or state ballot measures.  We lobby the Oregon state legislature in Salem in January or February on issues related to our AAUW mission.

Interest groups

• STEM Committee
This group works with our branch budget to provide young women with opportunities to build careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.  We have helped fund workforce training, an engineering program, a robotics team, an OSU program for girls and a Maker’s Club at the Albany Library.

Great Discussions
Members research a selected current international or domestic issue and discuss once a month.
