IWA Membership Categories

IWA provides the opportunity to connect with women from over 60 countries living in the Chicago area who gather at our 130+ annual programs to learn about each other and about the world we share. Ours is an international community that works towards cross-cultural exchange and the promotion of global understanding here and throughout the world.

In order to ensure that IWA is accessible to a diverse group of women, we are committed to keeping our dues reasonable.  Basic dues support less than half of the operating expenses of IWA.  Further discounted dues categories of Young Professional and Consular Corp/Military Veteran memberships allow IWA to continue to vitalize its membership by recruiting a new generation of women into the organization.

By maintaining membership at an enhanced level you demonstrate an even stronger commitment to the important mission of IWA to put global understanding into practice and advocate for universal human rights.
