Association and Committee Applications
Apply to become a member of AWPA (Association Membership)
You may also apply by mail or fax. Click here to download a printable membership application that can be filled out and mailed with payment to AWPA. If you choose to pay by credit card, the application can be sent to AWPA by mail or fax. Once the application is received and approved, you will begin receiving AWPA mailings, be eligible for member privileges, and receive a membership certificate suitable for framing in the coming months. You should also consider which, if any, technical committees to you wish to apply.
Apply for membership on a Technical or Speical Committee
You may apply to become a member of a Special Committee at any time after becoming an Association Member. Technical Committee applications may be submitted after a person has been an AWPA member in good standing for at least 365 calendar days, or after they have attended one full meeting of the committee to which they are applying for.
The application must be completed and sent to AWPA by mail, fax, or email. Please note that Technical and Special Committee membership applications are usually considered at each Executive Committee meeting, and should be received at least 30 days prior to the meeting to be considered. Special Committee applications may be submitted at any time. Applicants will be notified of their status after Executive Committee action and the committee membership database has been updated. This process may take up to six months before you are notified of the status of your application. Only one person from any entity may serve on a single Technical Committee. Applications which would cause there to be two persons from a single organization to become members of a Technical Committee will be rejected. Consult Sections 3 and 4 of the AWPA Technical Committee Regulations for more information.
Please note that applicants are not required to become an association member to join a Technical or Special Committee. However, such non-member applicants should be aware that reasonable committee activity fees may be charged to cover the costs of standards development. Please contact AWPA to determine the current committee activity fee amounts.
