WIA commences membership drive
This week ending July 8, the WIA commenced sending to candidates passing assessments, a letter of congratulations on becoming a radio amateur and inviting the successful candidate to become a WIA member. Accompanying the letter is a copy of AR magazine, a membership application form and a newly produced full color leaflet outlining the WIA and the services it provides to members.

All those people who have passed an assessment from mid October 2005 and are over the age of 15 and are not already WIA members have been sent the letter, a total of about 500 people. In addition, those people whose assessments were processed by the WIA office this week have been sent the material.
This week the office processed 2 advanced, 11 standard, 14 regulations and 44 foundation assessments and sent to assessors 144 new packs covering all grades of license. We are not sure if the assessors are stocking up for future use or they have a very large number of assessments in the pipeline, time will tell. To say the examination service was busy this week is an understatement.
As well as the leaflet outlining the WIA and its services we are currently working on a leaflet that outlines amateur radio and the many and varied activities within the hobby and how it might apply to various peoples interests. We expect to print around 50,000 copies of this full color promotional leaflet. The leaflet will be made available for clubs to use when promote our hobby, for the office to send to people inquiring about amateur radio and any other groups or individuals who are promoting the hobby.
A copy of the leaflet promoting the WIA can be download here, the leaflet is folded into three equal sections and can fit into a standard long envelope our your shirt pocket.
