Currently there are six interest groups that meet September through May (and some in the summer). There is also a STEM Task Force. Since meeting locations may vary, please check the listing in our Newsletter or e-mail: using the name of the interest group in the Subject header.

Morning Meetings

Fourth Tuesday –  4th Tuesdays at 10:00 (or so). This group provides an opportunity for members and potential members to get to know each other and have interesting conversations. Everyone is welcome. We seem to have different people show up every time and different conversations between 2-3 people or with the whole group, which is usually 5-10 people.  Topics “emerge” and are everything from, local and state politics and world affairs to what, in our own lives, is important. This is a “drop-in” affair! Chair: Janet Matwiyoff, 505-821-0418

STEM Task Force –  3rd Thursday – If you’d like to join us, send us an email at   The Branch STEM Task Force has or will “table,” present programs, plan or coordinate for various events, and represent AAUW at STEM networking events with other organizations in the Albuquerque area. Typically we participate in The Boys and Girls Club “Discovery Festival” in October, a Branch program in October, Tech Trek Reunions, essay reading for Tech Trek in March, the STEM Symposium [sponsored by Dept. of Ed.] early June, and possible other events to be announced.
