Our annual member meeting took place on December 6th. In case you missed the meeting, here are some highlights about what the Board of Directors discussed.
Member Website (MVP): Our secure member website was enhanced to make it more user friendly and to include a feature that allows members to purchase supplemental health insurance plans through a virtual shopping cart.
Member Survey: AWA recently conducted a member survey to determine members' interest in purchasing additional insurance through MVP, as well as ways to enhance the website.
Strategic Partnership: AWA entered into a strategic partnership with Small Business Majority. Now members have a voice on issue that may impact their small business and access to information on health care reform, clean energy and immigration.
Scholarship Program: The 2013 scholarship program was a success. Two $1,000 scholarships were awarded to dependents of members.
The AWA is proud to announce a strategic partnership with a national advocacy organization, Small Business Majority, a nonpartisan advocacy organization founded and run by small business owners, focusing on the biggest problems facing small firms today.
