The Tryon branch of AAUW (American Association of University Women) will meet Monday, Oct. 22 at 1:30 p.m. at the Tryon Presbyterian Fellowship Hall.
Lee Luebbe, chair of the Immigration Study/Advocacy Committee of the League of Women Voters in Henderson County, and Glen Rogers, who serves as the technical expert for the committee, will present the first of two sessions on immigration issues and how to arrive at consensus.
The October program will provide factual information, laying the groundwork for the Nov. 25 program on consensus on the immigration issues.
Lee, a long-time member of the League of Women Voters and a North Carolinian since 2001, has been studying the issues since 2007. Glen, a retired architect who moved to Hendersonville from Connecticut in 2004, joined the League in 2007 to become a part of the immigration committee. The League of Women Voters adopted the study of Immigration at its national convention in 2006.
The meeting is open to the public and refreshments will be served.
