The AAUW Ohio Board is considering centralizing the Annual Equity Day & State Convention to a Columbus area location year after year. In other words, the event location would not move from region to region.
Please keep in mind that the hosts of the Annual State Convention would continue to cycle around to all the districts (Central, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest). The Convention Chair and the participating branches would change every year. The only component remaining the same would be the hotel location
Please take some time to complete the survey, as well as to share it with all of your branch members. TAKE THE SURVEY.
The Ohio Legislative Voting Record 2014 details AAUW’s public policy positions that are most impacted at the state level, outlines the bills that are scored, explains how legislators were scored, and makes suggestions about how the Voting Record can be used to motivate voter registration and turnout.
The Ohio House of Representatives Spreadsheet shows how House members voted on the eight bills.
The Ohio Senate Spreadsheet shows how members of the Ohio Senate voted on the eight bills.
Branches can download the branch template of the Ohio Legislative Voting Record to adapt and use for printing out a small format brochure to hand out at meetings. It is a smaller format version of the AAUW Ohio Voting Record that branches can copy on two 8-1/2X11 pages back to back and distribute.
This Word document of page 7, the Voting Record Scorecard, will allow you to customize the branch template of the Ohio Legislative Voting Record by inserting only the voting record of your local legislators. You may also add information about your branch on the last page of the branch template document.
