Membership

Benefits of Membership

While LA/VC AWIS offers many programs that are free and open to the public, we do encourage you to join to receive the full benefits of membership. These benefits include access to our members – only networking events held twice a year as well as reduced rates for speaker events. Our AWIS chapter as well as the national organization also offer many leadership opportunities.

AWIS members also receive access to AWIS STEMinars, online seminars focused on career development, as well a subscription to the AWIS magazine published quarterly.
