Membership Benefits

Education and professional development are at the core of the AWC mission. We are also a wonderfully supportive community!

Membership allows you to take advantage of these opportunities:


Throughout the year we host networking events and workshops with interesting speakers, exploring current trends and learning career-building skills. Members pay a discounted rate for events! Among the fun networking opportunities we offer:

  • Cocktails & Conversations: Free, and no reservations needed! Members and curious non-members network and talk careers, industry trends and news, or just catch up and have fun.
  • Fundraisers: Our winter Holiday Auction and a springtime event raise scholarship money for student communicators.

Learn more about all of our Events.

Professional Support

  • Affinity Groups: We currently offer a peer-mentoring group for sole proprietors/entrepreneurs, called “Solo Pros.” We expect to create other groups in the future.
  • Communicators & Marketers Jobs: AWC National offers an online Job Board.
  • The Seattle Chapter will offer career tips and job opportunities through our LinkedIn group, open for members only, starting Oct. 15.

AWC National

Every month AWC National offers both live and recorded webinars that cover a variety of topics.
