A Letter from our president
Dear ILSWA Members,
It felt great to close out 2021 with an in-person Holiday Party! As much as our industry has gotten used to virtual meetings, there’s nothing like the real thing. After our 1st quarter board meeting a few weeks ago, I
was thinking about how nice it was to meet some newer people and companies that are getting involved in the association. Thank you, once again, to all the sponsors, attendees, board and committee members for a
I mentioned it at the party; without having our Golf Outing and Holiday Party in 2020, we were forced to pull back our donations to Misericordia and St. Jude Children’s Hospital. In 2021, we got right back on track and
our charities couldn’t have been happier. It’s because the sponsors and members that we were able to donate $50,000 to those charities last year. Truly awesome.
We are looking forward to the Spring Fling, golf outing, golf outing social and Holiday party this year. All will be in person. We also look forward to more virtual lunch-and-learn sessions, scholarship give-away and our
continuing with our Loan Reimbursement Program. Take advantage of your membership and participate.
Beyond just attending events, we can always use volunteers. In addition, if you have interest in becoming a board member, please reach out and I can help introduce you to the process. This year we are instituting a Code of Conduct Policy. The Board wants to ensure attendees to events agree to this policy. We feel it is important to memorialize our long-standing
mission to provide a welcoming, professional, and safe environment for our gatherings. Please take the time to read the policy.
Enjoy the cold! See you at the Spring Fling on April 6th. Keep an eye out for sponsorship opportunities.
President, Illinois State Wireless Association
