American Welding Society Strengthens Support to Younger Welding Professionals with Complimentary Student Membership
As an organization that recognizes the importance of developing the next generation of welding professionals, the American Welding Society announced today that it's making its student membership complimentary.
“The complimentary student membership is part of the Society’s strategy of supporting the younger
generation in the earliest stages of their careers,” said Cassie Burrell, Senior VP, Marketing & Membership Development. “AWS boasts a large portfolio of offerings that will resonate with young people, helping to build a bridge from student to early career to professional membership.”
For decades, the annual dues for the student membership were $15. Now, students can obtain a complimentary membership for four years and maintain the same benefits. These include free digital access to the Welding Journal, discounts on publications and educational offerings, and access to the ever-popular Member Network, including a student community.
“The complimentary student membership will introduce young people to a vast library of AWS resources and services designed to enhance their education outside the classroom, from scholarships through the AWS Foundation to networking opportunities at local AWS Student Chapter and Section events,” added Burrell. “We're looking forward to welcoming student members and for them to find career and real-life opportunities they may not have discovered otherwise.”
Students looking to elevate their education can apply online at aws.org/membership. They'll then receive their member ID, giving them instant access to their member benefits.
