Don't Just Take Our Word For It

There is no way to understand the culture of coworking - the camaraderie, the sharing of information, the amazing support - without experiencing it first hand. I was impacted by so much to the point that I am changing my whole idea of what I want my space to convey. - Lisa Siderman, The Urban Workspace
We love the GWA! In fact, that is what hooked us. We went to ourfirst GWA conference and fell in love with the business. - The Post Workspace
Being a member of GWA has opened many doors of opportunity, networking and lifelong friendships. There is a strong community within this organization that I can lean on for strategy, ideas and most importantly support! - Faye Stutts, Vari
