Belonging to AAUW-NC offers members an opportunity to learn about and participate in the goals of equity that are pursued locally and at the national and state levels. The Branch also has its own projects such as Local Scholarships, Tech Trek, and several community service projects. We hold  monthly programs,  some with keynote speakers, some strictly social, and others for fund-raising. We also offer a variety of interest groups that meet regularly to enjoy mutual interests:  hiking, books, world cuisine and more. Application forms  should be downloaded and sent to the AAUW Nevada County Branch address  with a check made out to AAUW-Nev Co Branch.
