Our full Branch meetings take place monthly. All Branch members are welcome to attend, and interested non-members are also invited.
We generally meet the third week of the month. The business meeting takes place in the morning, followed by a brown bag lunch at noon — with tea, coffee, and dessert provided — and then a lecture or presentation.
Our next Branch meeting will take place on Thursday, Sept. 19, 10:30 a.m. board meeting, 12:30 p.m. lunch and program, Manhasset. All are welcome. Please join us for our first branch meeting of the year and help us celebrate the 80th anniversary of our branch. Our guest speaker will be Jane Pendergast, AAUW New York State program VP.
