Chapters

AMWA chapters provide local educational events and regional networking opportunities.  

 

Membership in a regional chapter may be available with your AMWA membership.

 

Please contact your AMWA chapter leader or visit the chapter website to learn more about activities in your area.   If you are interested in volunteering for your chapter, please complete the AMWA volunteer interest form.

 

In addition to chapters, local networking coordinators help organize events and activities for medical communicators to network and connect.  Learn more about local networking.
