With more than 70 AFWA Chapters nationwide, you’re sure to find a network of professional women in accounting and finance near you.
AFWA hosts a variety of webinars throughout the year, interviewing industry professionals, and providing personal development. All webinars are free for members. Most offer CPE.
AFWA Chapters work hard to plan successful events, recruit members, and develop communications – and deserve recognition for the great things they are doing! Congratulations to these 2017 AFWA Chapter Achievement Award recipients!
This year’s recipients demonstrate a drive to take on challenges and strive for success. They are leaders in their companies and communities. They’ve earned the trust and respect of their clients and peers. And they show enthusiasm toward their career and the accounting and finance industry as a whole.
As you start your career, you will hear everywhere and from almost everyone that you should have a mentor. The LEAP Council shares how having a mentor can be a benefit to your career.
AFWA has provided me with the ability to gain confidence in a safe environment. I tell members it gave me my voice. I have the confidence to deal with clients or sit at the board table and express an opinion.
Because of AFWA, I’m less afraid to try new things like changing industries, leaving situations that don’t work for me, taking on new roles in different associations, get involved with other organizations
