2015 AAUW National Convention – San Diego, CA,
June 18-21, 2015
Every two years, AAUW’s national election offers members the chance to share their opinions on proposed amendments to the AAUW Bylaws and Public Policy Program, as well as to select the members of the national AAUW Board of Directors. The 2015 election was a great success, with 12% of members voting — more than double the 5% quorum required by our bylaws.
Both Texas candidates, Malinda Gaul and Traci Jensen, were elected to the Board. The bylaws proposals were all accepted except the first to eliminate the degree requirement for membership, which failed by 55.51 to 40.91%. All the public policy program changes were approved by >80%, with the exception of #7 which was approved by approximately 70%.
