    Two separate sessions will be offered:
  • Novice: If you don’t have a Facebook page or Twitter account, this is the session for you. You will be introduced to the concept of social media, shown what you can do with it, and have the opportunity to set up a page or account of your own. If you have never worked on a webpage for your branch, choose this session. We will explain low-cost website options available.

But you are not sure how to use it effectively.  This session will give you tips on how to engage your fans and increase your likelihood of ending up in the top news feeds. We’ll also tell you how to enhance your branch webpage by adding AAUW and AAUW Ohio RSS feeds, as well as Facebook and Twitter share buttons. You will get information about low-cost or free website options, too.

    This breakout session, facilitated by Deborah Wooldridge, programming vice president and president-elect, will address programming ideas that help us keep our value promise that by joining AAUW, you belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women have a fair chance.  AAUW programming reflects a wide range of activities, including education, advocacy, communications, membership and fundraising. By attending this session, you will hear from peers in the Bowling Green, Defiance and Warren-Trumbull branches about their best practice programming. This is an interactive session where we all learn from each other and take away some useable, practical ideas that work back to our branches.
