Associate membership

AWC’s Associate Member program is for businesses, public agencies, and non-profits.

  • Corporate members define what you want to get out of your AWC/city partnership. Some partners want to work with AWC on projects or contribute to advisory committees. Others find their greatest value comes from interacting with city members at conferences and exhibits.
  • Public agency/non-profit members may want AWC information and training. This includes our popular Labor Relations Institute, and to participate in our robust, cutting-edge member pooling programs. These programs are unique – they are member-driven, with a strong focus on cost-savings, prevention and customer service.
