Study and interest groups are a great way to get involved in the Portland Branch of AAUW. Interesting conversations occur in smaller group settings with like-minded women, and fast friendships can be made. Study/Interest groups enjoy the arts and culture, reading and study, food and fun. Non-members may attend a maximum of three group meetings prior to joining AAUW. If you have an idea for a group that might appeal to other members, speak up! Questions? Call or email Study Group VP Kathy Moyd at 503-206-8310 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For the most up-to-date information about the Study/Interest groups, please check out our monthly newsletter or this website's home page calendar.
