Welcome to the AFWA
Music City Chapter Website!

AFWA is the home for all women accounting professionals whether new to the field, experienced or considering a career transition.

The mission of AFWA is to enable women in all accounting and related fields to achieve their full personal, professional and economic potential and to contribute to the future development of their profession.

AFWA is a national association with several Tennessee chapters including Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga. Our chapters offer leadership, networking and educational opportunities. Participating in chapter meetings, seminars, regional & national conferences allow members to maximize the value of their AFWA membership.


Consider Progress

As part of a strategic initiative to improve ASWA’s brand presence, the Board of Directors proposed we change our organization’s name to:

Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance
Connect Advance Lead

At the Annual Business Meeting, members voted to change the name of our organization. Watch for our new name as we make this transition in 2013.

Educational Foundation

The ASWA Educational Foundation wants to interview any members who are interested in serving on our board. We promote and advance education, career development and leadership in finance and accounting. If you have any questions or wish to be interviewed, please contact one of the committee members: Christi Olsen, Mary Feeney Bonawitz or Mary Erlenborn.


Interested students should submit their completed scholarship applications by November 30th for consideration. The scholarship committee will be selecting recipients based on several criteria including participation in ASWA events, essay, recommendations and academic achievement.
