AWG Global Chapters

We currently have five global chapters and are looking forward to developing more! Any questions regarding AWG international membership can be directed to the Global delegates at international-del@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.
