AWMAC Ontario Annual Project Awards
Even though AWMAC members were unable to get together and celebrate members’ great projects in person, the annual project awards will still proceed.
All manufacturing and design authority members are encouraged to submit their projects and all submissions will be uploaded to the AWMAC Teams page on May 3, and voting will begin!
