National Convention News

Six New Mexico members met with our two senators and three representatives during Lobby Day June 15, 2017.

The very first convention in Washington, D.C., was held in October 1892. The 1890s were a period of tremendous societal change and technological advances, and women were playing a more active role in society than ever before (sound familiar). Since then, our association has convened in the nation’s capital 13 times, tying with Boston for the most frequented convention city! Learn more about the history of AAUW’s Convention in Washington, D.C. and the women’s history to be explored during the 49th AAUW National Convention from June 14 to 17, 2017.
