In 2014, WMACCA is taking a fresh look at what we are doing, "to understand what we are doing well, what could use more attention, and what new ideas we should consider incorporating into our repertoire," says President Dean Manson in his President's Message.  Click here to read the message.  
Dean, who is Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of EchoStar Corp. and Hughes Communications Systems, notes that this effort is designed to "ensure that WMACCA continues to build on its past successes while adapting to the evolving needs of its members." Many thanks to the almost 400 members who responded to our 2014 Membership Survey. Click here to read an Executive Summary of the results.   
We've already taken some of the easily implemented suggestions for improvement and will continue to do so.  Over the coming weeks and months, you'll hear more from us about how we are using your feedback to develop a new strategic plan for the chapter.
