Affinity Groups

Affinity groups are designed to be a structured setting in which the members of the group get support from peers as they develop and pursue their professional goals. Please see the Events page for meeting dates, times and locations.

Affinity group membership is a free benefit for AWC members; non-members usually pay a first-time nominal fee of $10.

#1) Solo Pros

Organizer: Lynn Gaertner-Johnston, Syntax Training (email: lynng@syntaxtraining.com)

If you’re “doing your own thing” in the communications field, you are welcome to join us. We enjoy informal visiting, exchanging ideas and sharing advice. AWC solo entrepreneurs and those who aspire to having their own solo business are encouraged to attend.

#2) Emerging Professionals [CURRENTLY ON BREAK – STAY TUNED FOR FUTURE NEWS]

Have you recently launched your communications career? Would you like the chance to network with and learn from your peers? The Emerging Professionals Affinity Group is a peer-mentoring program that provides AWC members (and guests) the opportunity to engage in in-depth conversations with like-minded professionals, to further their knowledge and careers while building new or stronger relationships.
The non-member fee is waived for this affinity group.

#3) Mid-Career Professionals [CURRENTLY ON BREAK – STAY TUNED FOR FUTURE NEWS]

This group is focused on women who are in the middle of their careers and want to pursue opportunities for growth. This group provides support and feedback, as well as a platform to discuss the hopes and challenges we all encounter along our career paths.
