The American Association of University Women of Michigan Student Advisory Council -
AAUWMI SAC is a state coalition of student leaders that advises AAUWMI on strategies for the future of young women and girls. Members will serve a one year term beginning July 1, 2017 and ending June 30, 2018. SAC members write for the AAUWMI newsletter and blog, make program recommendations, develop student workshops and introduce speakers at the AAUWMI Fall Leadership Conference as well the Annual Meeting and work with state officers to increase the value of student affiliation. Students are to participate in monthly electronic meetings and attend our Fall Leadership Conference on TBA and in the 2018 Annual Meeting & Convention next spring. AAUWMI will pay for SAC members’ registrations to these events.
Students will benefit by having the opportunity to grow their leadership skills, make connections with student leaders and distinguished women throughout Michigan, be supported in pursuing their passions, influence the future direction of AAUWMI, and gain knowledge of the many AAUW opportunities for students.
AAUW uses their powerful voice to speak out on issues such as education, pay equity, civil rights, reproductive rights, affirmative action, and sex discrimination.
