PWA is committed to educating consumers, operators and
municipalities about the wireless telecommunications industry and the critical
role it plays in Pennsylvania. PWA also supports legislation to improve overall
telecommunications technology for the citizens of Pennsylvania. Philip
Burtner, P.E., leads a robust board for PWA that also includes Barbara Burba,
CEO of Amerisite Wireless Development, industry consultant Michael Damiano, and
10 other members. The association hosts a variety of networking events each
year, including an annual golf tournament, a clay shoot and regional winter
socials. PWA supports several charitable organizations including the Penn State
Children’s Hospital, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Hubble Foundation.
PWA joins WIA’s seven other SWAP members: California
Wireless Association, Carolinas Wireless Association, Maryland/DC Wireless
Association, New Jersey Wireless Association, New York State Wireless
Association, Northwest Wireless Association and the Virginia Wireless Association.
WIA supports these associations by assisting with advocacy efforts, member
recruitment, revenue generation via events, marketing, association promotion,
website design and maintenance, and administrative tasks.
The SWAP promotes the wireless industry and raises
technology awareness at the state and local level. Individual associations are
created under the SWAP umbrella to develop a local presence for the wireless
industry within the community. It is vital to the continued growth of the
industry to have a single force addressing local issues and responsibilities.
Working together under the SWAP, companies can cultivate and develop positive
relationships between the wireless industry and the community leadership. The
state wireless associations welcome anyone involved in the wireless industry
including, but not limited to, carriers, tower companies, vendors, services
organizations, law firms, title companies, environmental companies,
construction companies, network consultants, engineering firms and individual
site acquisition agents.
