NATIONAL ORGANIZATION GROWS THROUGH CHAPTERS
The WCAA is on the rise due to the growth of local chapters. It has had six new
chapters start up in the past year, totaling 18 current chapters. Several more
chapters (below) will start up early in 2004.
The WCAA national office provides financial support for new chapters, incentives
and promotions to chapters and promotional discounts for chapter members only.
Teresa Grysikiewicz, chapter development assistant, is in place to help chapters
through the start-up process.
WCAA Industry Partners (vendors and suppliers) realize the value of being a part
of a national association and want to grow its local chapters.
