Annual Open House

Starting 2021, the President of the Branch will host an annual open house event every summer.  It’s a fun, casual event, where guests can ask questions, meet members and get a feel for the branch and its strategic goals for the year.  This event will be held at various locations within the District and will be open to members and anyone who is interested in advancing the mission of AAUW through the DC branch.  There will be food, networking, and fun!
