Letter from the President
Greetings PWA Members!
I am very happy to be serving as the PA Wireless Association President this year. I look forward to hosting our 2021 events and supporting our charities, sponsors, and members.
PWA has almost 2500 members and I would like to personally thank them for all their support through 2020. Many of our events were postponed or canceled last year. We recognize the need for safety first and wish all our members a healthy 2021! Having said this, we are happy to announce that 2021 will be more productive! We are planning our full schedule of events as listed in the calendar below. Our hope is that we can successfully complete all our 2021 events. The pandemic will direct our scheduling, environments, and attendance. We are also aware of the many corporate mandated travel bans. Please choose health and wellness in 2021. Nevertheless, we recognize the need for social networking! We are hosting our East Clay Shoot on April 20th as our first 2021 event! This event always sells out quickly, but I hope you can join us for an outdoor event with a BBQ lunch, prizes, and networking!
Many of you know that I am a huge advocate for education in our Industry. I have developed coursework for the TEC/WIA training programs. My degree is a B.S. in Education. And I have always believed we all benefit from formal learning. I am happy to announce that as President I will be advocating for more education events. Our first educational event will be hosting a multi-SWAP webinar in partnership with the TIRAP/WIA team to promote the benefits of Apprenticeship in our Industry. Workforce Development and retention is a priority for our industry to continue to expand and keep up with the speed of technology advancements. Please, keep May 19th available and spread the word to any other Wireless Associations that you think may be interested. PWA is eager to collaborate with other Associations to promote education. Reach out if you have an idea that we could join forces.
As I mentioned, we have a vast membership. And we appreciate each and every one of you! We will be working hard this year to rectify our membership email list. This is a transient industry and better opportunity is often a reason for a change of employ. If you think you have changed email addresses since first signing up as a member, please take a minute to update your membership. We do not want to miss anyone on our event blasts! Also, I welcome any member to reach out if interested in serving on one of our committees.
In closing, as I stated, I am very happy to serve as your president and look forward to a productive 2021! Stay safe and healthy.
