Branch History

Thanks to the dedication of a small but determined group of women, our branch was formed. We were granted official recognition by the AAUW on April 1, 1980.

Originally formed as the Sun City West Branch, the name was changed to the Northwest Valley Branch in 2002 to better reflect the membership area.

Since our early origins the membership, programs and activities have flourished. Currently, we are the second largest AAUW branch in Arizona. We are also celebrating our 40th Anniversary this year!
