AAUW Covington-Mandeville is sponsoring Great Decisions for the 47th Year

The Covington-Mandeville branch has the longest running association, as a branch of AAUW, with the Foreign Policy program, Great Decisions, in the nation, having offered this program as a community outreach since 1973.   We offer two sessions of the discussions; both are open to the public, with the purchase of the briefing book (available as an e-book as well).  The afternoon group will meet in the Fellowship Hall of the Madisonville Presbyterian Church (701 Pine St., Madisonville) beginning at 1:00 PM.  The evening session will be held at 7 pm in the second floor card room at the Windsor Senior Living Community at 1770 N. Causeway Blvd in Mandeville.  Both sessions will begin on Monday, February10th for eight consecutive Mondays, skipping February 24th (Lundi Gras). Contact Eileen deHaro at 985-624-9553 if you wish to participate. PRIOR REGISTRATION IS MANDITORY!

Published annually by the Foreign Policy Association, the Great Decisions briefing book features impartial, thought-provoking analyses on eight issues of concern to U.S. policymakers today; these articles form a starting point for all group discussions. The purchase of the briefing book ($28, discounted price with limited availability, or purchase your own e-version for $22.99) is required for participation. The 2020 edition features eight topics: Climate Change, India and Pakistan, Red Sea Regions, Human Trafficking, Northern Triangle, China in Latin America, The Phillipines, and Artificial Intelligence and Data. The briefing book provides historical background, current U.S. policy and alternative policy options, informative maps and detailed graphs, as well as suggested readings and resources for each topic.

About AAUW

The Covington-Mandeville Branch of AAUW was established in 1964. We are located in Southeast Louisiana on the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain with most members living in the communities of St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, and Washington Parishes.

We have a diverse membership with degrees from institutions that are equally diverse. “Full Members” (members with degrees or associate degrees) and “Student Affiliates” (those working toward their 1st degree) are recognized as members at the AAUW state and national levels. But the Covington-Mandeville branch also welcomes “Supporters” who are non-degree participants at the local level.

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) promotes equity for all women and girls, lifelong education, and positive societal change.

AAUW has been empowering women as individuals and as a community since it was founded in 1881 by seventeen alumnae of eight colleges. AAUW is the largest, oldest national organization dedicated to the advancement of women and education. For more than 130 years, we have worked together as a national grassroots organization to improve the lives of millions of women and their families.
