AIWF chapters are the heart and soul of The AIWF. Along with our sister chapters and the national organization, we promote an exchange of ideas that benefit both professionals and dedicated enthusiasts through publications and programs.
In addition to discounts on products and services, your membership opens the door to opportunities to attend educational seminars and lively events. It is also a wonderful way to meet knowledgeable people in the industry and simply a great way to meet others with common interests.
Membership is open to all. We encourage you to attend an event and join the fun!
There are seven levels of membership to choose from - something for everyone. When you become a member, you'll join thousands of others who share interest in food, wine, education, and social events. Join us and share the spirit of our diverse cultural and culinary heritage.
