Leader on Loan
The Minnesota Leader on Loan program offers branches the opportunity of having a state board member or past state leader to provide branch support or programming. Please feel free to consult with the state president or leadership director about your request or needs.
AAUW-MN will cover the leaders transportation cost (as funds are available). The host branch is responsible for any meals or overnight accommodations.
A request form* should be submitted to the state board President. Final approval is by the State President. Branches may request a specific person but final decisions will be based on topic expertise, availability and proximity to the host branch. Click here for a LOL request form.
Board to Branch Connections (BBC)
Board to Branch Connections are intended as a way for State Board members and the Minnesota Branches to form a more personal and supportive relationship. Since we have 30 branches in Minnesota, each state board member initiates a contact with their assigned two or three branch presidents. For 2016-2017, board members will contact branch presidents either by email or telephone from October 1-21. This is a time for branches to share activities and successes, express concerns, and/or to identify areas of needed support. Each board member makes a report to the state president about the results of their BBCs and they, along with board members, determine how best to support branches based upon information gained from the contacts. Of course, branches are encouraged to contact their BBC board person or any member of the board at any time with questions, suggestions or support. Below are the BBC assignments for 2016-2017. Reports are due October 23, 2016.
