    AWI Community is Here!
    May 4, 2015

    AWI would like to announce our newest member benefit – AWI Community, an online forum specifically for members. This new AWI program began on Tuesday, May 5.

    We know the value that AWI members put on the networking and educational opportunities we provide through our conferences and programs throughout the year. To build on that value, we are excited to enter into this new phase of member communications by providing AWI members an environment to connect, engage and share critical industry information and best practices in real time.

    This new community will also help AWI communicate more dynamically with our members, by responding more quickly to your needs and receiving your input on critical industry issues. This will only strengthen our ability to implement our mission, which focuses on providing opportunities for members to participate, collaborate, share resources, and engage through AWI.

    AWI Community is an evolving place. We will introduce special interest groups and new tools in the coming months to enhance your experience, including live Q&A discussions with industry experts you can participate in no matter where you are. We look forward to your feedback and suggestions on how we can make AWI Community a member benefit you can't do business without.
