The first AWS Leadership Symposium took place in 1999 in hopes of building the Society’s future base of leaders. Since then, many who have participated in this annual event, have gone on to serve on the AWS Board of Directors.

Each year, an individual is selected at each of the 22 District Conferences to attend the Symposium, held at AWS HQ in Miami (Doral), Florida. Please note that applicants are required to be AWS members in good standing and active in Section activities.
