2015 Vote to Open AAUW’s Membership

One of the issues on the spring 2015 ballot sent to all AAUW members was a proposal to drop the degree requirement.

The change failed to get the approval of the required 2/3 of the voters, so to join AAUW one still needs an associate or equivalent degree.

However, 40% of the voters approved the change, and only 12% of the eligible members cast ballots. For details on the counts on this and other items on the ballot, see

The amendment will be back in 2017. The group that’s been supporting the change since 2005 is open to new participants and new ideas. If  you’d like to join them, please check out the
