IWCE 2017 Breakfast a Great Success!

The breakfast at IWCE in Las Vegas was attended by 115 people.  This year it was decided to allow more time for networking, so there was not an official speaker.

However, RCA Director and Youth Program Chair Carole Perry did introduce 16 year old high school student Anna Veal, who was given an the RCA Young Achiever Award by Stephanie McCall, Trade Show Director of Penton Publishing.  Anna was chosen by Carole Perry for her dedication in inspiring other young people to get involved with radio technology projects and amateur radio at her high school.  At age 11, Anna was an RCA Young Achiever at RCA’s Dayton Hamvention Youth Forum, and the winner of RCA’s “Young Ham Lends a Hand” contest, for her community outreach.

Thanks to the generosity of the breakfast attendees, over $700 was collected to help fund the RCA’s Youth Program.  RCA Director Charles Kirmuss said he would match up to $500 in donations, providing RCA with over $1,200 for its Youth Activities program.

Anna then briefly spoke about the many technical projects she is engaged in.  Anna is representative of the future of the wireless industry, and RCA salutes her, and the efforts of Director Carole Perry to introduce more school-age youth to wireless.
