The Illinois State Wireless Association is a nonprofit professional association with the purpose of developing a local identity for the wireless industry within Illinois and local communities to voice a unified message toward local issues and responsibilities.
In addition to providing general awareness of the wireless industry, educating customers and public officials about the wireless industry and the critical role it plays in Illinois, the Illinois State Wireless Association cultivates and fosters relationships among the members of the wireless industry and conducts fundraising for several charitable organizations.
A Letter from our president
What a year 2020 has been. Without stating the obvious reasoning behind it, ILSWA had to cancel our golf outing and is now looking to develop a different, virtual Holiday Event. A lot has changed since our Spring Fling event back on March 11th. Unfortunately for our charities, the Summer Golf Outing and networking event was the biggest fundraiser of the year. After donating $45,000 to $50,000 per year since I’ve been on the board, we will only be able to give a fraction of that away.
I do want to thank the Summer Spotlight Sponsors. After canceling the golf outing, we decided to run a series of weekly focuses on sponsors. Each sponsor was written up on our website and we pushed out a LinkedIn post for them. Thank you, Summer Spotlight Sponsors!
A few members have reached out to me recently thanking the Association for what we have done for them and to say “we miss the events and seeing each other!”. Hopefully we can get back to business as usual AND ILSWA as usual sometime soon.
Keep an eye out in the coming month for news about our 14th Holiday Event.
President, Illinois State Wireless Association
