Between The Pipes

Thank you and Merry Christmas to our Associate Members

2020 has proven to be a difficult year given COVID-19, shutdowns, personal and employee safety concerns, lost revenue, and the list could go on and on. Each of us have needed to overcome these hurdles, adapt to changes such as physical distancing, masks, and video conferencing, and change the way in which we conduct our lives personally and professionally. Given the circumstance, no group has likely felt the difficulties this year has brought more than our Associate Members.

Our Associate Members fuel this association with advertising, sponsorships, dues, and by providing the training our system members need.  Their willingness to help is apparent each and every day.  NYRWA continues to be successful due to the commitment and dedication of both our Associate and System Members. 

At this time, probably more than ever, our Associate Members are feeling the financial difficulties resulting from this global pandemic. We ask that should you be looking for materials or services, please first consider giving the opportunity of your business to our well-deserving Associate Members.

Thank you all, we provide this list of Associate Members with deep gratitude for their service to this association.  Here’s wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
