In 1968, a group of college and university women in the Ocean County area realized that they needed a forum that would meet their needs to gather and form a sisterhood of women with diverse areas of expertise. This would eventually become the Northern Ocean County Branch of the AAUW. Since then, the group has evolved to more than 65 members and has actively supported AAUW initiatives and continues to play an important role in the community. Fundraising to support scholarships, Community Service Projects, informative programming, and a variety of interest groups and social events have become the mainstay of our identity.
The AAUW NOCB awards three $1000 scholarships annually. We are happy to announce our 2018 scholarship winners: Dana Haig, Brianne Silva, and Tasfia Sultana. Congratulations!
Our branch is thrilled to have participated in the AAUW Tech Trek program held at Stockton University in 2017 and again in 2018. For more information, follow this link: http://techtrek-nj.aauw.net/
On September 22, 2018, our branch celebrated its 50th anniversary with a luncheon at the Lobster Shanty in Point Pleasant Beach.
