Completed NETC -Five Star National Recognition Program – 4-29-2020


To accomplish the AAUW vision and mission, the NETC branch establishes the following Strategic Plan for 2021-2022:

• Provide branch programs, fundraising projects, and events that support the AAUW mission of advancing gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.

Provide training, encouragement, and communication to ensure branch members are equipped to participate in a safe meeting environment at a successful level.

• Demonstrate an active membership of at least 100 members by June 2022.

• Explore and actively cultivate relationships with other women’s organizations in our community for the purpose of mutually supporting one another’s efforts to promote awareness and action where our missions align.

• Provide up to two (2) college students a $1,000 scholarship to the 2022 AAUW National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL).

• Provide up to two (2) KEYS High School graduates a $1,000 scholarship through the Georgeann Gallian KEYS Scholarship program in 2022. NETC Branch members will continue to actively support all students and faculty at KEYS High School.

• Provide up to two (2) students enrolled in the 2021-2022 Dental Hygiene Program at Tarrant County College Northeast Campus a $1,000 scholarship. Also provide $500 each for up to two (2) students to cover the partial cost of the required dental kits.

• Review of the appropriate use of $2,000 scholarship funds appropriated in the 2021-2022 budget by the chairs of the three scholarship committees who will then make a recommendation to the Board of Directors for their review and approval.

• Explore ways to work with HEB ISD to determine what the needs of ‘tween and teen girls are following the trauma of Covid-19 and how best our branch can serve them on their path to successful high school and post-secondary educational attainment. This will include a re-examination of our existing Full STEAM Ahead program to see if it is still the best model for this work, given the current circumstances.

• Support of the AAUW Greatest Needs Fund at the $3000 level.

• Increase Legacy Circle Membership by 10% by June 2022.

• Serve as co-hosts with North Texas Branches at the Texas Conference to be held at the Hurst Conference Center, Hurst, Texas, April 29-30, 2022. NETC will provide co- chairs and volunteers for the Local Arrangements Committee (LAC).
Explore ways our branch can continue to participate in the AAUW Five-Star National Recognition Program.
