Future Goals:
Our members will continue to learn about and build relationships with executives in local scientifically-oriented companies, research institutes and service providers, from small start-ups to large corporations, in both the public and private sectors. To demonstrate our gratitude for their financial support, we will actively maintain these relationships with our sponsors at AWIS-SD events, ensuring that they receive the benefit of publicity and exposure to the local scientific community.
