Our first meeting of the new year was
A Panel Discussion with Three Oregon and
Four California NCCWSL Attendees

Our program on 9/22 was very interesting! It was planned by the Oregon Online Branch and we invited the California Online Branch to be a part of it. The speakers shared their experiences of attending a National Conference for College Women Student Leaders, (NCCWSL–nick-whistle). These conferences are held yearly and are run by AAUW
