Delaware Valley AU merges with Bucks AU, reorganizes as one chapter

The Boards of Directors of Delaware Valley AU and Bucks AU are pleased to announce that the two chapters have merged into one large AU chapter with regional committees serving all AU members within a 60-mile radius of Philadelphia PA. We will operate under the Delaware Valley AU name, DVAU. Visit our new website,, to stay informed.

DVAU founder and former President, Janice Rael, is now the DVAU Vice-President, and former Bucks AU President Ed Joyce has stepped up to lead the newly formed Delaware Valley AU Chapter as our new President. The current Board members are:

Ed Joyce – President
Janice Rael – Vice President
Laurent Levy – Treasurer
Alan Gold – Secretary
Patrick Casady – Webmaster
Ellen Greenfield – Speakers Bureau
Ryan Dubosar – Media Chair

DVAU invites you to take part in the reorganization of the chapter by volunteering to join or head one of our regional committees in Bucks County, Philadelphia County, South Jersey, and Northern Delaware. DVAU needs you now more than ever before! Please let us know what your interests are.

DVAU is active on a number of fronts. The Bucks County Committee continues to meet monthly in Doylestown, PA. The Philadelphia Committee, led by DVAU President Ed Joyce, is planning regular monthly meetings in and around Philadelphia. The South Jersey committee is fighting New Jersey’s “tuition tax credit” (vouchers) bill. The delightful Ellery Schempp will speak to DVAU in early September, and we’re planning a fundraiser for December. DVAU’s Church-State Issues Symposium is scheduled for April 9, 2011 at the beautiful National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. We hope you can join us at these events.

The new Delaware Valley Americans United needs your tax-deductible contribution to hold these events, do outreach and educational programs, and to continue our work in educating people about the importance of church-state separation in ensuring religious freedom. Please donate to DVAU to help us bring Americans United’s message to the Philadelphia, South Jersey, and Northern Delaware area. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
