  • Full-time officers are able to experience the benefits of belonging to a global association of women in their profession (IAWP) and can apply under the IAWP Adopted Officer Program to be sponsored by an IAWP Member.
  • Once approved for the program, the officer's application is made available to IAWP Members.
  • If a member chooses to sponsor an individual, the IAWP will immediately inform the officer and the sponsor will pay the  membership fee for the "adoptee."
  • At the expiration of the membership period, the sponsorship can continue, or the individual can renew their membership directly.

Easy Steps in the Process:

     1.  Complete the online application at this link,  http://iawp.wildapricot.org/page-1854211

      2.  We will notify you when your application is approved for the program, and again when a sponsor comes forward.

     3.  We send the sponsor an invoice to pay your membership fee and when paid, we provide the sponsor contact information to you.
