CWA Members and Friends,

It is with great regret that I announce the CWA Board of Directors voted April 17, 2015 to dissolve CWA effective April 30, 2015.

Last year's shift in executive staff revealed membership and revenue levels were much direr than the Board had originally believed.

The media and communications arena has had many changes since CWA was founded in 1958, especially in the construction industry. Several of you this year expressed the value of CWA's networking opportunities, and during the transition, the Board is studying ways through social media and other electronic communications to continue those activities.

I appreciate the significant time and effort put forth this past year to increase membership, re-launch the sponsorship program, energize the committees, as well as increase communication with the membership.

I also wish to thank Creative Association Management (CAM), a full-service association management company, who provided management services during this traumatic time, especially Bill Tolley who served as CWA's Executive Director.

On behalf of the Board, I would like to extend our sincere appreciation for all your support of CWA.

Patti Flesher,
President, CWA
