Referral Program for AFWA Members

Limited Time: AFWA’s New Year Membership campaign

The $25 new membership fee is waived for all new members through February 28, 2019. No promo code needed. Now is a great time to join!

Do you have a colleague in mind who would benefit from an AFWA membership? A co-worker who has asked for more information about AFWA? Or a guest who comes to events but hasn't yet joined? We know introducing women to AFWA can be difficult and sometimes it's hard to find the words to express the benefits of membership. We want to make it easier for you! AFWA has launched a new membership referral program. When you refer a contact to AFWA, a national volunteer will send a personalized message to that individual. When your referral joins AFWA, you receive a certificate for $10 off your membership renewal!
