State Reports:

As part of the Delegate Assembly, each state shares their "State Report" including information regarding their organization, membership, strengths, weaknesses and issues their association is facing.  One of the most beneficial parts of the DA is being able to share ideas and strategies to address state association issues and concerns.   SSWAA members can access copies of the 2016, 2015,   2014  as well as the 2013 State Reports.
