Statement Regarding Chapter Event

The RWA Board of Directors has been notified about the RWA Online chapter’s January 2022 workshop involving a former Board member. Chapters are separate legal entities from RWA, and RWA does not approve or vet chapter speakers or workshop topics. A chapter contest, conference, online workshop, and/or speaker does not constitute an endorsement or approval by RWA in any way.

According to RWA policy (7.3.) and the affiliation agreement signed by RWA’s chapters: RWA assumes no financial or other responsibility or liability for any chapter activities or for any action taken by chapter officers, boards, or members.

Please note that the RWA Online Chapter is in the process of disaffiliating from the national organization, and the Board has received notice of its intent to complete disaffiliation by mid-February 2022.
