The Issaquah branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) was chartered on November 26, 1979. AAUW works to break through educational and economic barriers affecting women and girls. Our members are involved in activities that support the missions and goals of AAUW while involving the branch with the community. Branch meetings and interest groups readily promote friendship and exchange of ideas.
We are affiliated with both the national AAUW organization (www.aauw.org) and the Washington state organization (aauw-wa.aauw.net).
The November branch meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 20th at 7:00 p.m. in the Eagle Room in the Issaquah Police station. Sandi Doughton, author of The Full Rip---9.0 will present the program. She is the science editor for the Seattle Times. She will discuss earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest with emphasis on the Seattle area and the Seattle fault. She will point out the similarities of our geology and that of the Japanese earthquake area. Due to our proximity to the ocean, concerns about tsunamis will be addressed.
Copies of Sandi's book will be available for purchase.
The Eagle Room is located in the Issaquah Police Station at 130 E Sunset Way, Issaquah.
Branch meetings are open to the public.
