Neighborhood Groups
Neighborhood Groups

While we are lucky to have more than 100 members in our Roseville-South Placer Branch, it’s nice to get to know our AAUW neighbors. Branch members have many opportunities to meet in neighborhood groups: coffees, lunches, happy hours, crafts activities, cultural events, trips to interesting local shops, white elephant gift exchanges, and more.


The purpose is to create a sense of inclusion among AAUW members by building neighborhood friendships and providing a close membership support system. Groups are arranged by their residential proximity, although members may choose to join any neighborhood group.Scheduled activities for each neighborhood group are published monthly in the branch newsletter, Branch Lines. New members’ names are sent to neighborhood coordinators who will stay in touch with them. For more information contact the neighborhood coordinator directly: (contact information is available to members in the branch handbook)

Contact the person listed if interested in joining:
