About the Chapter

The American Medical Writers Association Northwest (AMWA-NW) Chapter was an official regional chapter of the national American Medical Writers Association (AMWA).

On March 1, 2017, we decided not to sign the new AMWA Chapter Agreement. As a result, we will no longer offer formal, AMWA-sanctioned networking and educational events.

About AMWA Members

AMWA members create and edit biomedical communications for a variety of businesses and organizations.

The AMWA-NW Chapter comprised approximately 230 members living in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and British Columbia, Canada.

Through symposiums, chapter meetings, and informal social gatherings, the Northwest chapter promoted the professional development of its members and provided opportunities for networking and information sharing among colleagues.

We Want to Hear from You!

We intend to maintain social and professional activities to support regional AMWA members who want to keep in touch. We will continue to hold meetings open to anyone. These events will be funded and advertised differently, but we anticipate having more freedom to innovate and expand the nature and scope of our collective activities than we would as an AMWA Chapter under the new Chapter Agreement.
