Chapter FAQ

Is there a local-only or local chapter-only A&WMA membership option?
There is no longer a local chapter-only membership. Please become an A&WMA International member at Join A&WMA (awma.org). International members will be eligible for discounted local event prices.

I can longer find the membership login page on your website.  Pease help.  
Please see the previous question. You will no longer need to log in to our website to receive discounted local event pricing.  When you sign up for an event, you will have the option to choose member pricing

I am already an International A&WMA Member. How can I receive the discounted rate to your local GCC functions?
See above questions. 

I am considering becoming an International Member. What are the benefits? 
International members receive A&WMA publications as well as membership benefits to International functions or functions outside of the Gulf Coast Chapter. You would still enjoy member discounts to Gulf Coast Chapter functions as a local associate. More information on A&WMA International can be found online at www.awma.org.
