National Events/Symposia

The AAW sponsors numerous woodturning symposiums throughout the country, which provide an excellent opportunity to see demonstrations by world-class woodturners and come together with turners from other areas. The symposiums typically require the help of local volunteers, which is a great way for chapter members to support these events. Volunteers can also qualify for a substantially reduced cost of attendance. Listed here are the scheduled symposiums for the upcoming year.
