  • Membership: More than 5,600 members in the US, Canada, and 30 other countries. Members work for pharmaceutical companies, universities and medical schools, hospitals, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, journals, and many other businesses and organizations. Many work as freelance writers and editors.
  • Organizational Structure: Headquartered in Rockville, MD, AMWA is governed by a board of directors composed of a 13-member executive committee and representatives from its 19 US and Canadian chapters.
