I am excited for the year ahead and have a lot to share regarding our plans for 2023. The Board met in early January to discuss the event agenda, the by-laws and member involvement in the association. The result is that we have a clear picture of who we are, what we want to accomplish and how to get there.
As many of you have seen, registration for our first two events is now open. We will host a Networking Social in Mt. Pleasant, SC on April 19th, the evening before the Music Movement Golf Tournament. This is our fourth year doing so and it is always a lot of fun. Our 17th Annual Charity Golf Tournament is scheduled the next week, on April 26-27, at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, NC. We are still waiting for Pinehurst to wrap up their numerous construction projects before returning, hopefully in 2025. If you have not registered for either event, you can do so via the website.
I have met with new President & CEO of WIA, Patrick Halley, several times and hope to have him speak at a CWA event in Q3. We are also considering a joint event with the Virginia Wireless Association. We will wrap up the year with our Annual Holiday Social in Raleigh at The Angus Barn Pavilion on Wednesday, December 6th. As you know, our social has become one of the “must attend” events of the year throughout the east coast.
As mentioned, we are working on updating the CWA By-laws and hope to have those completed by the end of Q2. There is a lot to consider and we want to make sure all areas of importance are fully vetted before we finalize the draft.
Finally, many of you have expressed interest in becoming more involved in the association. Therefore, we will be sending out a recruitment form for anyone who would like to join a committee.
I hope to see you all in Mt. Pleasant or in Greensboro in April.
