AWS Sections

Local Sections are the very heart and foundation of AWS and are, therefore, very important to the wellbeing and future of the Society

Section meetings and activities provide convenient access to fresh ideas and plenty of great information. Members have the opportunity to network, gain knowledge, and get answers to welding questions from Section members with years of experience. Professional Development Hours may be earned by attending technical meetings, and other planned activities may include educational seminars, plant tours, social events, student programs, community projects and more!

Participation in AWS Section activities can be enjoyable, educational and instrumental in knowledge gained and business contacts acquired, as well as forming lasting friendships from common interests and shared experiences.
