Attend the AAUW Regional Conference, September 27-29


AAUW Maryland is a co-sponsor along with states from Florida to New York.

AAUW-VA is hosting this three-day conference of AAUW members along the Atlantic coast at a resort/conference center just north of Richmond. Members of other organizations and your friends and family are invited to this powerhouse conference.

The sessions include presentations by Gloria Blackwell, AAUW CEO, and Meghan Kissell, AAUW Senior Director of Policy and Member Advocacy. Other knowledgeable speakers will discuss the challenges of our public schools, artificial intelligence, poverty, voting rights, inclusion, Title IX, and the compelling history of AAUW.


You may wish to make the event a vacation given all the historical, arts, and outside activities in the area of the Conference, the beauty of the resort location, the quality of our speakers, and the opportunity to network with members from other states.

Hotel reservations can be made here.
