International Chapters

AWG international members come from many countries including Australia, Canada, Colombia, Egypt, England, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Russia, United Arab Emirates, and the commonwealth of Puerto Rico. We currently have three international chapters and are looking forward to developing many more! Any questions regarding AWG international membership can be directed to the International delegates at international@awg.org. 
 
AWG is striving to build our International membership. We have recently revised the dues structure for International members residing in a country that has an economy classified other than "high income" beginning with our 2012 memberships. The annual dues for AWG International members who live in countries that are classified as "other than high-income" by the World Bank are now $10/professional and $5/student. 
 
See a list of eligible countries .
 
AWG also offers several benefits for our international members, such as the Sand and Takken Travel Awards and the Chrysalis Scholarship. Members will also receive the bimonthly Gaea newsletter and the AWG Email-news. Please read our welcome letter for more information on these and other benefits offered to AWG International members.
