FAWL is the strong organization it is today because of members like you who dedicate themselves to our association and its mission. Ongoing debate over gender equality, workplace harassment, parental leave, and judicial appointments affect all women lawyers and make FAWL’s efforts on these issues even more important.

Membership is everyone’s business. In order to grow the organization it takes effort from all of our members. We’re looking to reward those who work to bring in new members - are you in?

Here’s how it works

Share with your colleagues the benefits of becoming a FAWL member and encourage them to join. For each qualifying member you recruit and who joins and pays their dues at the time of on-line application before June 1, 2019 you will receive one entry into our monthly prize drawings! Make sure the member you recruit enters YOUR name in the designated field in the on-line Membership Application so that this will be a qualifying member for you. The FAWL staff will handle the rest. (See “The Fine Print” below.)

What’s in it for me?

  • You receive one entry for each new member you recruit who identifies you as the person responsible for her or his recruitment.
  • Drawings will be held April 1, May 1, and June 1 for all entries received before 11:59 p.m. ET the previous day.
  • The prize in each of the drawings is one $250 Amazon gift card.
  • Winners and top recruiters will be recognized on the FAWL website and in FAWL print and electronic publications.
  • You can win more than once.

We’re here to help! Go to and click on “Membership.” There you’ll find:
  • FAWL membership benefits flyer.
  • FAWL Member-Get-A-Member campaign flyer.
  • Sample language for a recruiting email or letter.
