Chapter membership is a valuable benefit of belonging to WID because of the local business and professional contacts and knowledge available. Members are automatically assigned to the nearest geographic chapter, based on zip code. Chapter membership does not require an additional dues payment.
Chapters host programs in cooperation with local industry interest or military installations, provide professional development and leadership opportunities, and support community-based charitable endeavors, members of the U.S. Armed Forces, and defense-related educational pursuits.
