Hello NEWA Family,
We hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. This year has brought us many challenges but also heightened awareness of how critical strong wireless connections are now and will continue to be in the future.
As an Association, we have diligently tried to bring value to our members whether we could gather in person or not. One initiative was the creation of the Job Board which has been very active over the past few months. Therefore, we plan to keep it on the website for the immediate future. Our hope is to connect employers and job seekers in the industry who have been displaced as a result of the pandemic. Awarding six (6) $1,500 NEWA Scholarships was the highlight of our year and we are looking forward to awarding more in 2021. We also recently hosted our 1st Educational Webinar which offered our members an opportunity to hear more on state wireless legislation from WIA’s Arturo Chang, Senior Counsel-Government Affairs. It was very successful and we hope to offer more webinars for you all to enjoy in the future.
Regretfully, we were not able to gather in-person for much of the year due to COVID-19 and have decided against hosting our annual Holiday Social. The health and safety of our NEWA family is of utmost importance to us and we are confident this is the right decision. We are, however, already thinking about 2021 and hope to see you all at our usual annual events, especially at the NEWA Charity Golf event!
Many thanks for your membership and your continued support of NEWA, we truly appreciate it. Have a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
Dan Hamm-Vice President
