The Northwest Wireless Association is a nonprofit professional association organized to promote and advance the common interests of the members of the wireless communications industry in the states of Washington and Oregon.
NWWA’s vision is to reach out to all sectors of the wireless infrastructure industry to identify collaborative efforts that will benefit carriers, tower companies, and support services firms. We create professional networking, mentorship, and educational opportunities to educate and support our workers, our companies, and our customers.
The Northwest Wireless Association (NWWA) was founded in September of 2007 to coordinate the efforts of the people and companies who provide wireless services in Washington and Oregon. NWWA’s members are devoted to giving back to their community while they work to create a more “wireless friendly environment.
NWWA’s charitable efforts vary from very local efforts to national causes. Besides the annual golf tournament, examples of other Charitable Events have included:
- Adapt Engineering hosted an NWWA fundraiser to raise donations for the family of a worker who died in a tragic fall from a rooftop facility;
- The Northwest Wireless Association donated more than 1,000 toys to Toys For Tots as a result of the annual holiday party.
Staying true to our mission of offering members a forum for networking, NWWA hosts monthly mixers at venues throughout Seattle, Bellevue and Portland.
NWWA strengthens its members’ lobbying voice so that the laws governing wireless systems will reflect customers’ growing demand for wireless coverage that is fast, reliable, and affordable. Particularly in an environmentally-conscious region like the Pacific Northwest, there is a pressing need for our the wireless industry to have a clear voice of reason. NWWA hopes to serve its members by educating the decision-makers who write and enforce the various laws which affect our industry.
