The Jamestown Branch of the New York State AAUW was formed in 1921. Each year our branch hosts the What’s New Fair, the proceeds of which are used or scholarships for area women. Also, this will be the thirteenth year our branch has sponsored and organized Get In The Game, an event stemming from the education and equity committee which joins area athletics with young girls for a day of learning about sporting opportunities and fun. Finally, we have an annual AAUW Open House, Holiday Gathering, District 1 Conference, Membership Social and Day at Chautauqua.
At the AAUW NYS Convention the Jamestown Branch was named Platinum Branch the top level 21st Century 2015 Recognition Award. The award is based on outstanding work encompassing all priority areas: planning, programming, membership development, technology, communication and visibility.
