CWA-AA, USA Inc., the official Association of CWA alumni in the United States, is not affiliated, associated, endorsed by, or in any way officially connected with any  group/organization (except CWA alumni classes/clubs/chapters/expressly identified). Any official request for documentation, education/employment verification, representation, or otherwise, should be directed to CWA-AA, USA INC.     LRC. 

CURRENT DEVELOPMENT - SEPTEMBER 2020

We have been speaking with multiple classes through their leadership teams, and a general meeting for class leaders/designees is scheduled for Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 7:00 PM EST. Please submit the name of your class representative to cwaaausa@yahoo.com to join the session. Individuals wishing to represent a class that is not formally organized, can forward his/her name and follow the instructions for participation. Inclusion is the goal! 

 

In keeping with the transition plans to give each class (generation) a voice in the future direction and affairs of the Association, classes will be represented in the process to shape the agenda and planning of the National Convention. As standard, a neutral facilitator(s) will manage these discussions to ensure inclusiveness and fairness. With sensitivity to the current global pandemic, the US election season, and other concerns, the Board has set a tentative date of January 16, 2021 for a National Convention. The timeframe will provide an opportunity for dialogue, adequate planning, awareness and execution. It is important that the future of the Association is not determined by a few members, but by ALL generations of our diverse alumni body. 

 

In keeping with due process, and upon the election of new officers, a transition of officers will occur. The turn-over will be effectuated to not only ensure a smooth transition of operations, but to also limit any interruption to services that could be impactful to our alumni or the Association. In the interim, the Association is continuing to provide all services (including education/employment verifications, etc.) upon request, irrespective of membership compliance. These services/resources have proven to be essential in these unprecedented times. 

 

The Association has opened a process for all alumni regardless of their class, age or social status. Please see important timeline below and plan to participate accordingly. 

 

Important Timeline:

  •  October 3, 2020 7:00 pm EST - Meeting of class leaders/designees 

  •  Mid-October - November, 2020 (TBA) - Add'l meetings of class leaders/designees

  •  December 15, 2020 - Pre-Convention Registration Deadline
