American Association of University Women - AAUW
Whidbey Island


International Affairs

This group meets at the Coupeville Library from 10:00am to 12:00pm on the third Friday of the month January through June and September through November. Those who can, park in the municipal lot for these meetings to ensure library patrons have access to the library's parking spots.

As individual schedules permit members gather at one of the local restaurants to enjoy a lunch together following the meeting. Watch "The Islander” each month for details.

Discussions are based on chapters in the current year edition of "Great Decisions". Published annually by the Foreign Policy Association "Great Decisions" features thought-provoking analyses on eight issues. The book provides historical background, current U.S. policy and alternative policy options, informative maps and detailed graphs, suggested readings and resources, as well as opinion ballots for each topic. Members alternate as discussion leaders with co-leaders on some occasions.
