WE DID IT!
Our first year of electronic board meetings and an electronic convention held in two locations. We weren’t sure—but it all worked and we had a successful AAUW of Utah Convention and Annual Meeting. Many thanks to our technical crews in Salt Lake City and St. George who made it possible for us to meet in the County Council Chambers in Salt Lake City, and in a conference room at Dixie University and hear and see the presentations in both locations.
We were so fortunate to have Patricia Ho, our AAUW president here in Salt City in person! Her enthusiasm for AAUW is always infectious, and Lisa Maatz, AAUW VP for Governmental affairs sent an entertaining video recounting her first lobbying experience when she was in grade school.
The distinguished women chosen by the branches were honored by the state: Jeannette Seloover Johnson, Ph.D, honored by St. George Branch; Deneece G. Huftalin, Ph.D, President of Salt Lake Community College, honored by Salt Lake City Branch; and our own Janet Bunger, CPA, two term president of AAUW of Utah, honored by Wasatch Branch. The full reports of the accomplishments of these dynamic women are posted on the website.
The annual reports from each branch, and the reports of the special projects supported by AAUW of Utah, let us know that we are on track furthering the mission of AAUW. These reports are also posted on the website.
San Diego called us to the AAUW Convention in June. What a great opportunity to get to know each other better, learn from the workshops, meet other enthusiastic AAUW members from across the country, and to have a great time in an incredible setting on San Diego Bay! We had a lovely evening with Patricia Ho in her suite, as members of her “Utah Branch.”
