Branch Membership

AAUW branches are groups of local AAUW members working together in their communities for the greater good of women and girls. This network of nearly 1,000 branches across the US, including Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico, are the heart of the organization.

What do branch members do?

In addition to national opportunities offered to all AAUW members, branch members enjoy networking at the local level, serving in local and state leadership roles, sponsoring community action projects, and lobbying on AAUW priority issues.  AAUW Crystal Lake Area branch members also are members of AAUW Illinois and the AAUW national organization.
