MARCH 2020

I am honored to be able to serve as Southern Arizona’s 2020 Chapter President. AWLA is here to serve its constituent base and I want to hear from everyone, not only AWLA members, about what we can do to assist our local community.  We will continue programs such as our revitalized mentorship program (thank you to Esther Brilliant) and supporting local organizations such as YWCA Tucson and Youth on Their Own (YOTO). But just because we are continuing programs doesn’t mean that we aren’t open to hear ideas and suggestions on how to serve this vibrant community.  You can contact AWLA by your preferred method of communication - call, email, snail mail - but without your voice, we can only opine on how to support you and this community. Please reach out with how AWLA can support you and our community.





You can browse our committee roster to see what committees the SOAZ Chapter sponsors along with the email addresses of the chairs. If you are interested in joining a committee please contact them directly. Click on the link below and scroll down to the SOAZ subcommittees currently available.
