President’s message:

AAUW – Great Falls 2016 – 2017

We have planned a great year of wonderful programs.  Our monthly programs are free and open to the public.  Our September meeting will have the superintendent of Great Falls Public Schools, Tammy Lacey, discussing proposed school district changes.  Upcoming programs include Cherie McKeever from Great Falls College MSU speaking on Human Trafficking, Martha Stahl from the Montana Planned Parenthood, a field trip with Jan Brown at the business, “Montana Cooperative Association”, Heidi Gjefle will speak on “What’s Love Got to do With It?”, John Faulkner from the Great Falls Airport Authority, and Bob Kelly, the mayor of Great Falls.

Our Great Falls community has generously donated an enormous amount of books and other materials to be used in our yearly Book Sale.  During the summer our workers sort all of these items into an impressive collection of books, games, puzzles, and other materials just waiting for someone to take them home and enjoy.  The Great Falls Branch uses these funds to donate to local libraries, the HANDS Program, and give scholarships to Cascade County women.

AAUW Montana is partnering with the Montana University System on the Start Smart Program that trains young college women on how to negotiate salaries.  Many of our AAUW members will be training to become workshop facilitators.  Watch for the workshops scheduled in your area.
