Greetings from the President
We welcome your interest in AAUW and hope you will consider joining this organization as we strive to continue “breaking through barriers for women and girls.” Through our membership, AAUW speaks with a powerful voice in Missouri and nationally. Throughout the state of Missouri, there are active branches that would welcome you as a member, or, if you cannot find a branch near you, you can become a national member. This website provides information about national, state, and branch activities to keep members and others informed about what is going on with AAUW and to help find ways to promote the mission of AAUW.
To better understand the activity of the state organization, view the 2014 strategic plan. To learn more about individual branches, see our branch locator page.
