We conduct two general membership meetings each year which feature speakers on economics, safety, regulation, product knowledge, current legislation and other pertinent subjects. Panels discuss problems of concern for the small business owner. AWRF supports the activities of standing committees which address subjects such as safety, insurance, technical matters, testing, government affairs, tagging and identification. Our AWRF quarterly newsletter, SLINGMAKERS, keeps all members abreast of the latest developments in the industry.
AWRF sends delegates to participate in the activities of other associations such as ASTM, ASME, CVSA, as well as The Wire Rope Technical Board, and we maintain ALPHA Projects, dialogs on matters of common concern, with other trade and technical organizations such as The National Association of Chain Manufacturers, The Cordage Institute, The Specialized Carriers and Rigging Association, LEEA, OIPEEC and The Construction Safety Association of Ontario.
