Aprons: Heidi reported that they have arrived.

State Convention: Mary and Marilyn attended the convention in Faribault. Information from the convention was presented to the members. Mary and Marilyn reported that AAUW is stressing simplifying its priorities and letting other organizations work on other goals. The AAUW focus will instead be on:

  1. Pay equity
  2. Title IX
  3. Discrimination against women

One item from the state convention that garnered interest was the Tech Savvy grants that are available for junior and senior high school students.
