Welcome to the Easton, PA Branch of AAUW!

September

Annual Poinsettia Sale set to begin soon. Check back for more information.

 

AAUW members from the Easton, Bethlehem and Allentown branches met to discuss the results of the member survey.

Following our meal and a raffle of AAUW-imprinted items, Linda Robertson, standing in for an ailing Stacey Zaremba, explained the survey results. Response to the survey across the three branches averaged from 42% to 54%, rather low as a solid survey response is between 75%-80%. Those who did respond to Survey Monkey seemed to represent the members who are most active. Survey questions covered how members received information about AAUW, how they felt about the possibility of merging the Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton branches, and whether they would continue their membership if any type of merger was authorized. Robertson explained that the morning discussion was only the first step in a thoughtful process.

Read the soon to be published October Newsletter for more information and next steps.
