AAW Membership Application
WIT (Women in Turning) is “dedicated to encouraging and assisting women in their pursuit of turning, sharing ideas and processes to further member’s skills and creativity, and increasing participation of women in the field of woodturning.”
The AAW WIT Committee agrees that to further this mission, we can work with chapters to help grow the number of women in AAW. Currently, women comprise less the 9% of AAW membership.
To encourage women to join AAW, the WIT Committee offers a limited number of WIT sponsored half price AAW memberships to women for a one-year, full "General" AAW membership.
To be eligible, a grant recipient must be a woman and who has never previously been a member of AAW.
Only the chapter AAW WIT Liaison, chapter president or vice-president may request the grant.
After we’ve received the application, the recipient will be sent a promotional code with instructions on how to use the code in applying for an AAW membership. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the nominee is a new member of a local chapter (within the last two months), WIT will pay 100% of the AAW membership.
If the nominee has been a member of a local chapter for more than two months, WIT will pay 50% of the AAW membership.
If the nominee is not a member of a local chapter, WIT will pay 50% of the AAW membership.
Grants are currently limited to no more than two women, per chapter, per quarter.
Quarters end January 31, April 30, July 31, and October 31. Based on the number of requests, this limitation may change.
We hope that this offer will be an incentive for new women woodturners to join your chapter.
