Happy New Year to all – or as we say in our house, “Stastny Novy Roc” (which means Happy New Year in Czech). We enjoyed our December meeting when the Woman of Excellence Award was presented to an outstanding woman who has contributed significantly to the local community in Jefferson County.
2017 promises to be a great year for AAUW Port Townsend and you can start off with a bang by planning to attend the AAUW branch meeting on January 21 at the Elks. Refreshments will begin at 9:30 am and the meeting will run from 10 to 11:30.

Women in Charge is our theme for the year. On January 21, 2017 Victoria Poling will speak about how she transformed her life after reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. And, many AAUW members throughout the state will be supporting the women’s march in Seattle. Read more about this event on Facebook.
AAUW Port Townsend is the largest AAUW branch in the state of Washington.
The branch includes nearly 200 active and involved members living in and around the historic seaport town of Port Townsend, Washington. We have been active advocates for women and education since the branch was founded in 1948.
The Port Townsend Branch of AAUW is committed to making a significant impact on education and equity for all women and girls. We will remove barriers and develop opportunities for all women and girls in East Jefferson County to reach their full potential.
- to support economic opportunities for women and girls;
- to support educational equity for women and girls;
- to advocate equity in public policy;
- to honor women who demonstrate leadership and commitment.
In principle and in practice, AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership. There shall be no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
