Membership

AAUW membership is available to all men and women who have at least an Associate degree.

Here’s a video explaining what AAUW does.

Membership is paid through a “blanket fee” which covers membership in our local branch, AAUW California, and AAUW at the National level. The total is $95.  Discounts are often available for NEW members, and special rates for students at all levels.  To join our branch, use the secure form on our National website. Be sure to send our branch membership chair an e-mail so you can be immediately connected with the branch also.

To renew your membership, you may use our 2019 Membership Renewal Form Members may also renew online through AAUW’s Membership Payment Program on our national website. Full details are available at the previous link.  Memberships typically are renewed by June 15, but you can join anytime!

Some of our long-time members do not pay National dues, but for MOST members, $59 of your dues support AAUW programs at the National level through the AAUW Fund.  For most members,$56 of dues are deductible since AAUW Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The remaining $3 of the National dues support our advocacy efforts.  Additionally, we ask our members to support our Tech Trek campers and the LPD AAUW Local Scholarship Foundation.  Additional donations may be made to the AAUW Fund.

As a branch member, you are also a member of AAUW of California  and AAUW (National).  You will receive the California Perspective, published 3 times a year. It is posted  on their website as a regular .pdf file as well as distributed via e-mail and postal mail.  The California publication is available via e-mail on a highly-encouraged opt-in basis by sending a message to savepostage@aauw-ca.org with YES in the subject line.  You will also receive AAUW Outlook four times a year, also posted on their website and distributed via email notification.

AAUW membership has a number of other benefits. Check out the list of Affinity Partners on our National website for more information. Partners include The Princeton Review, The Feminist Press, MagazineLine, ShopAAUW, Office Max, Target, Nationwide Insurance, Mylo, HotelStorm, and others.
