The Georgia chapter of the Architectural Woodwork Institute announced that it chose WoodLINKS USA to invest its remaining fund balance with in order to foster the development of the next generation of woodwork professionals.
According to a WoodLINKS USA release, faced with declining membership as a result of difficult economic times, the chapter recently decided to dissolve. The board wanted to do something useful with their remaining fund balance in hopes that by investing in their future workforce they might one day reestablish their chapter. With this in mind, they requested proposals from several educational organizations. Ultimately WoodLINKS USA was selected.
The money will be used to pay for site license fees for up to six schools in the state of Georgia. The remaining balance will be used to pay for teachers to attend IWF 2012 in Atlanta.
WoodLINKS USA is currently looking for schools in Georgia interested in becoming part of its 65-school national network. For information, visit www.woodlinksusa.org.
