Message from Leadership

Happy Birthday USA!

Along with celebrations, barbecues, time in the Bay and in the pool, come our thanks to AAWGT leaders staying on for the coming 12 months and new ones joining us. A special thank you to those departing their chair positions and staying involved with AAWGT. Linda Eggbeer of the Marketing and Communications Committee and Caroline Purdy of the Grantee Liaison Committee have given years of service in a variety of committees and roles and their leadership will be missed. Also, we want to thank all those who raised their hands to volunteer on a committee or had their hands raised for them!

Calling All Communicators!

The Marketing and Communications Committee is seeking passionate and talented volunteers with skills in social media, graphic design, or writing. Whether you can contribute a little time or a lot, your help is invaluable. We need women experienced in Canva, websites, writing, or social media management to join our dynamic team. There are roles for everyone, and the more we can amplify our work, the greater our impact will be. Your involvement can make a significant difference in our outreach efforts.

If you are interested in making a meaningful contribution please reach out to the committee here.

A Warm Welcome to our Newest Members
