On March 27-28, 1925, there assembled in Williamsburg, Virginia, a group of Virginia women, called together as delegates from the already existing local branches of the American Association of University Women, with the intent to form a Virginia State Division of the organization. At the morning session on the 28th the motion was made and passed to form a state organization. When the meeting adjourned that afternoon, the Virginia Division of AAUW was a reality.
