Refreshments will be served. The Montevallo Branch of AAUW invites all to this gathering, which will offer an opportunity to meet new people, renew old friendships and learn more about AAUW projects and plans for the coming year. New members of the faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to attend. New officers will be confirmed and introduced. Branch leaders will distribute information about programs and projects for the year — at the local, state and national levels. Branch leaders believe that returning members will want to be a part of the exciting opportunities and challenges that lie before us, and are hopeful that guests will consider membership in the group. To reserve places at the reception, members and guests should contact Branch President Tracy Payne-Rockco at PayneT@montevallo.edu, or Co-Vice President of Membership Carolyn Jones at JonesCL@montevallo.edu.
