AWSN welcomes those who are unemployed or on leave of absence who want to join AWSN in order to know more about the network or meet more of the AWSN community. AWSN is a small non-profit and there are many opportunities for individual members to serve in many roles either directly for AWSN, or by supporting member programs with specific skills such as legal, management, website and IT, event planning & execution, marketing etc. Volunteerism with AWSN is an excellent addition to any resume. It is also an opportunity to learn new skills and challenge yourself to bigger opportunities such as serving on the executive or board. Individual membership is an opportunity to build community amongst like-minded people. Come meet, network, and volunteer alongside some of the awesome individuals, mentors, and leaders who are already involved with AWSN. Whatever your reasons are, we encourage you to sign up as an individual member. Your membership sends a strong message that you believe that diversity in the fields of STEM is important and beneficial.
Membership fees are new at AWSN - Unemployed/Leave of Absence Membership is currently $10.00/year and will be used to begin our celebrations of our 25th anniversary. Show your support for AWSN by kicking in $10 for 25 years of connections, programs, support and mentoring. OR Unemployed/Leave of Absence Membership is FREE if you volunteer for 2 hours for a biography update program (Sept 2017 - Oct 2018).
Members receive regular newsletters with updates on AWSN and the activities of its member programs. We are able to offer some discounts at AWSN and member program events, early registration at AWSN events, and have volunteer hour tracking for professional associations and references for registered events.
