EXPLANATION OF AMWA MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS
All AMWA member dues are annual and renew on the anniversary month of membership commencement.
Principal members set the strategy and direction of the AMWA, and are the only level of membership eligible to serve on the Board of Directors. The AMWA Board sets the direction of the Association, including the budget and resource allocation. Principal members are entitled to all membership benefits. The AMWA will post Principal member logos on its web site, and include links to specific pages on their respective company web sites. Principal member dues are $10,300 annually.
General members form the core of the organization. General members share most of the Principal member entitlements except for serving on the Board of Directors. The AMWA will post General member logos on the AMWA web site, with links to company web sites. General member dues are $5,200 annually.
Associate members are entitled to benefits that keep them informed of AMWA’s work and technical contributions to the industry but are restricted in their influence of planning and direction. They can participate on some committees but have no voting privileges. They also have access to AMWA Reference Implementations. Associate member dues are $2,400 annually.
