50 Golden Years for AAUW Laguna Beach Branch

“Champagne & Cupcakes” on May 7th serves as a launching point to celebrate the  AAUW Laguna Beach Branch Charter Year 1967!

From its modest beginning in 1967, AAUW Laguna Beach Branch has grown to over 170 members and is still growing and thriving.
To launch its 50th anniversary celebration – officially chartered May 11, 1967 – the branch is hosting a “Champagne & Cupcakes” party on Sunday, May 7, 2:00-4:00pm, at the lovely waterside Dana Point Yacht Club, 24399 Dana Drive, Dana Point.

To help recognize this important milestone, we are honored that AAUW CA President Donna Mertens will join us, and that guest speaker Donna Lilly, AAUW College/University Partnership Cochair, will discuss this important national program.  All local branch presidents have been invited to join us.

   In early April, members received their party invitation in a special “gold” envelope.  To find out if space is still available, please contact Karen Dennis (, 494-5378).

  •  DUES Are DUE! 

    It’s that time again when AAUW dues are payable for the coming fiscal year 2017-2018. The membership committee is hoping that you will renew promptly when the AAUW AUTO RENEWAL INVOICE arrives in your e-mailbox around May 1st.  This payment plan encourages you to use your credit card to cover all dues (national, state and branch).  The form also has information if you’d rather pay by personal check.  For dual members and those without e-mail, dues renewal notices will be mailed.  

     In addition to making dues payment, you are encouraged to go to our branch website,, for up-to-date national, state and branch news and for informative articles of general interest. This way you can stay connected throughout the year instead of waiting for the Laguna Waves to drop into your e-mail or home mailbox.  Check it out!

    Dues Levels:

    • Renewal $99
    • Dual $30                        
    • 50-Yr. Honorary Life $30
