AAUW offers unique opportunities for personal and professional growth, community leadership, and friendships. Tehachapi Mountain Branch is looking toward a goal of 100 members. Because each new member brings a new dimension to the group, the organization encourages every member of the Branch to recruit at least one new member this year. However, it is not enough to sign up a new person. Members must be encouraged to become active, supporting, and contributing. For those who prefer a less active role, Tehachapi Mountain Branch expresses appreciation for their renewed membership and support of the organization’s efforts.


Membership in AAUW is open to any graduate holding an associate or equivalent, a baccalaureate or advanced degree from an accredited institution. Those who have a degree from a foreign institution recognized by the International Federation of University Women may also join AAUW.

In principle and practice, AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership. There shall be no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability.
