Membership Benefits

2017 Nov Lunch Program Mayor Bynum and Program ChairsWhen you join AWC, you become a part of a national network of highly motivated and involved professionals who share common interests and goals. Nowhere is the strength of that network more evident than at the local level. Through our monthly programs, educational workshops and informal gatherings, Tulsa Chapter members provide each other with invaluable professional support. But just as important as the career benefits are the personal friendships that develop over time. Those relationships are the real measure of our strength.

The communications disciplines represented within AWC include: advertising, communications law, communications management, computer/Internet communications, education, fund development, graphic design, multimedia communications, photography, print and broadcast journalism, public relations, publishing, radio, television, marketing/sales, technical communications and video and television production.

At the national level, AWC provides members access to the latest information on trends and technology and to leadership and skills training. Through the online membership directory and professional conferences, members can make national and international connections.
