If someone is passionate and committed to our AAUW issues, she should not only be allowed to join us, that person will also most likely be a great member because of that passion. Every branch benefits from such committed, active members, helping the branch be a vital part of the local community. They often take on leadership positions, too. This is also a boon to branches in small towns with a finite pool of potential members.
