Greetings AAWR members,

We have not just made it through the cold winter but we have thrived.  I am referring to our many early 2022 accomplishments.  We are now over 1,000 strong!  We have 1,030 members as of early March.

I would like to say thanks to Stephanie Hige, AAWR’s Executive Director, who is managing a newly expanded family as well as managing the growing family of AAWR. 

Financially speaking we are prospering. We have many new active members. We have had some generous corporate sponsors for our winter events, and our job postings have allowed us to have a positive balance for the past year.

I think we are heading out of the pandemic toward more opportunities to gather.  When we ask ourselves what the benefits are of AAWR membership, one of the answers is the camaraderie of members. ~   Read More
