   AAUW Colorado eNetwork Updates
Through the generosity of Eugenia McClure, a long-time member of the Grand Junction branch of AAUW, our branch has been awarded a grant of $500. The purpose of this grant is to support projects that enhance the mission of AAUW. With this grant, we’ll purchase a one-year subscription to AdobeConnect, enabling our quarterly programs to reach at least 100 Colorado women. Watch for these upcoming quarterly webinars on issues of importance to women and girls. We also hope to collaborate with Colorado AAUW leadership to offer virtual trainings to AAUW branches.
Are you an AdobeConnect user? If you'd like to help manage our meetings, trainings, and webinars from behind the scenes, let Jae know at We'd welcome additional expertise, or even committed curiosity--one time or all year long--to make this a widely used tool!
