AAUW Virginia Beach Branch

The Virginia Beach Branch was founded in 1958. Throughout the years, we have become known for contributing to the community as well as for advocating education and equity for women and girls. The leadership skills, learned through AAUW participation, have enabled many of our branch members to move to influential policy-making positions in local government, education, and business as well as to elected and appointed offices in Virginia AAUW.

Today we have over 55 members from a variety of backgrounds, colleges, professions, and interests. We continue to focus on accomplishing our written goals. They include increasing the number and participation of members, raising sufficient monies for AAUW Funds, continuing and expanding community action projects, increasing involvement with public policy, and strengthening our leadership development program and increasing our local visibility.
