Celebrating 40 years of supporting girls and women in our community.
Our members live in communities along the north and west shores–the California side–of Lake Tahoe. A few members come from other nearby areas as well, including Truckee, CA and Incline Village and Reno in Nevada. We enjoy living, working, and playing in one of the most beautiful places in the world and still manage to give much of our time and energy to support the mission of AAUW—advancing gender equity and economic security for women and girls.

Our general meetings are on the second Thursday of the month. We have varied and interesting speakers and would love to have you join us.
Advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research is the mission of the American Association of University Women (AAUW).
In support of this mission, the AAUW North Tahoe (CA) branch:
- sponsors five, 7th-grade local girls to Tech Trek, a week-long science and math camp designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in young women.
- sponsors a local high school girl to Girls State, a leadership and citizenship-training program offered to young women in California by the American Legion Auxiliary.
- provides a scholarship to a local high school senior entering college.
- contributes to the National AAUW Fund that awards grants and fellowships to exceptional recipients who pursue academic work and lead innovative community projects to empower women and girls.
Our branch has active and interesting special interest groups, including Bridge, In Stitches, Book Group, Walking Group, Great Decisions, and Culinary Capers. These groups welcome new participants at any time.
We look forward to meeting you.
