Want A Website For Your Local?

In this day and age, people look to the Web for information. As a result, organizations almost always need to have a website to compliment their communications. Unfortunately, not everyone has the expertise or time to maintain a local web site.

For this reason, AFT hosts free web sites to affiliated locals. To take advantage of this benefit, contact Sylvia Watson, AFT Washington Communications Coordinator, at 206-432-8084 or swatson@aftwa.org. Sylvia can help get your site set up and even provide hands-on training.
