Each summer and fall, AWB hosts a series of regional meetings for members and non-members alike to offer input on the association's legislative objectives. These policies are used to guide AWB’s advocacy work during the legislative session and are dependent on input from members like you to guide their development. During election cycles, AWB hosts interviews with legislative candidates in conjunction with the regional meetings. Go to the AWB Event Calendar for a full list of dates, times and locations.
