How to Join

To join AMWA, submit the application form on the AMWA Web site.

Membership to AMWA costs $175 for regular membership and $60 for student membership.

How long does the membership last?

Membership lasts one year. You will be sent notification when it is time for you to renew, and you will need to send the annual fee to the AMWA headquarters in order to keep your membership current. If you choose to let your membership lapse, you will not be charged an additional fee to re-apply.

Will I need to join both the worldwide organization and the local chapter?

Membership in AMWA automatically places you in your local chapter. You do not need to send two application forms or payments.

Are there any discounts for students or others?

There are no institutional rates offered. However, there is a student fee. In order to obtain status as a student, you must be enrolled with at least 6 credit hours. Student members are also required to provide proof of enrollment in an accredited institution of higher education (a copy of your current class schedule or the registrar’s receipt). Student membership is limited to no more than 3 years, not necessarily consecutive. See student membership information on the AMWA Web site.
