Corporate Membership

AFWA is proud to offer a Corporate Membership Program to companies that enroll 5 or more members at the same time. Individuals who become members under this plan will receive all the benefits of AFWA membership at a special discounted dues rate, and the company will be eligible to choose from several corporate bonuses. Check out our Corporate Member Brochure for more information.

AFWA Membership Dues Refund Policy/Transfer Policy: No refunds are provided for membership dues paid to national or chapters.  An AFWA membership is for an individual person, and therefore non-transferrable to other persons.  Membership is recorded in the name of an individual not an organization. AFWA reserves the right to deny/or revoke membership. It is at the discretion of the board, if an AFWA member leaves an organization, and the organization paid for the membership, to decide to allow the remainder of that membership to transfer to another individual at the organization.
