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.

How to Join

In addition to full membership, AWIS offers equitable dues levels for early career professionals and students. All membership levels will receive the same benefits. AWIS National will direct 25% of membership dues to the chapter that the member designates. Please click the link below to be directed to the AWIS National membership website.
