The AAUW Milwaukee Branch, first established in 1894, has a membership that includes people from the Greater Milwaukee area. Members develop friendships and take advantage of networking opportunities by attending meetings, serving on committees, and assisting at events.
Monthly Socials and Luncheon Programs are typically held on the first Saturday of each month, September through May, in facilities at the Italian Community Center. Our members and guests begin by gathering at 11am to network and socialize, then enjoy a lunch and speaker at 11:30am.
Branch publications include a monthly newsletter with topics, news, and updates on relevant issues, as well as information on upcoming Branch meetings, committee work and events. Our branch members also receive state and national publications, which provide articles concerning issues significant to women and girls, and inform members about noteworthy activities related to AAUW’s mission.
Milwaukee Branch boasts having a membership that is diverse in several respects, including a younger average age, especially serving on the Board of Directors. Some members of the Branch are currently assisting the state in establishing a Wisconsin Student Advisory Group.
If you have an interest in coming to a meeting, you will be welcome as our guest for that visit. Please call or email to make a reservation.
