Our members live in communities along the north and west shores of Lake Tahoe from Incline Village, NV to Tahoma, CA; from Truckee, CA to Reno, NV. 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.
Because of the pandemic restrictions, some of our meetings may be held virtually via Zoom.
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.
Our branch has active and interesting special interest groups, including Bridge, In Stitches, Book Group, Great Decisions, Gourmet Group, and Friday Niters. These groups welcome new participants at any time.
We look forward to meeting you.
