Join the SWA

The first step in becoming an SWA member is to contact the SWA's Executive Director, Dean Matheson, or any SWA member, to express your interest in joining the organization. That opportunity will help both parties determine if membership in the SWA is a "good fit".


When appropriate, the SWA office will provide a membership application which is to be completed and submitted to the SWA office for approval by the Membership Committee.

Dean can be reached either via email at or via phone at 706-431-6025.

Thank you for your interest in the SWA.
