“Hawaii is one of Patricia’s “home” states where she is a member of three branches. She has been a national leader to whom we often turn for information and advice.  As a speaker at our state conventions she has inspired and energized us.  Patricia has provided encouragement and support to me as a state and branch president.  I enthusiastically support her for AAUW presidency.”

“I wholeheartedly support Patricia, a proven leader who considers the needs and concerns of members while using data and quantitative analysis to make sound business decisions.  With her good understanding of nonprofit finances, she provides essential financial oversight and fiscal responsibility.”

“Patricia served as the AAUW board liaison to the national Fundraising Committee which I am honored to chair. As a thirty-year veteran of fundraising in the nonprofit world, I recognized immediately Patricia’s skills and expertise in understanding the operations of nonprofits, her nonprofit leadership abilities, and her commitment to the mission of AAUW. She was dedicated to our Fundraising Committee, asked probing and engaging questions, took initiative in learning more about the details of fundraising, helped keep us advised of board issues and policies and was a great asset to our work. Patricia is progressive and PERFECT for AAUW!”
