 Volunteer with the WFWA

You may have heard that WFWA is a volunteer-run organization. But do you know what that means? Every job function and position, from the Board of Directors to the people who work the registration desk at events, is a volunteer. You don’t have to volunteer to reap all the benefits of WFWA, but we guarantee you’ll receive a whole lot more if you do.
