We are now accepting memberships for the 2022 Season, which runs October 1, 2021 - September 30, 2022. This will entitle you to the Member's reduced entry fee for our155th Annual Exhibition and allow you to enter the 2022 AWS Associate Members Online Exhibition. Annual dues remain at $50 US per year. (See next paragraph for foreign members)

Benefits of Sustaining Associate Membership include notices of AWS activities, the twice annual Newsletter, Exhibition Prospectus, Catalog of the Annual Exhibition (where you will be listed as an Associate Member), a reduced entry fee for exhibition submission and invitations to the Opening Reception and Annual Dinner. Because of the high cost of mailing the catalog outside the United States, foreign applicants should include the following amount in addition to the $50 membership fee to cover postage costs: Canada $10.00, Mexico $14.50, all others $15.00.

Only Signature Members attend the Annual Business Meeting and use the AWS initial after their signature.
