Let Us Know You’re Interested
The first step in getting started is to let us know you’re interested. You can do this by emailing us.
As an all-volunteer organization we rely on members to install themselves (with our help, of course). Review the installation guide so you have a good understanding of what your role is in getting connected. You should also review the website in detail to understand what our association is and how our network works. We operate quite differently from commercial networks in that we are a member cooperative and require member participation in some form to keep things running.
Attend a Meeting
Part of the installation process involves attending an orientation meeting. At the meeting we will discuss our association and services, answer any questions you may have, and give you the information you’ll need to become a member and get online.
Dana Simmons, Volunteer Coordinator, and Jerry Zollars, Treasurer, offer Tech Support to new and existing members. Contact us for more information.
LCWA holds its regular board meetings on the second Monday of each month. All members and prospective members are welcome to attend to get informed about what’s happening in the association. Visit our Meeting Schedule page for more information.
Be A Member, Not A Customer
The success of the association depends on the active participation of its members. Members are not customers. As an analogy, consider this: in a business, the success of the business depends on all of the employees, not just the owner or principals. Customers pay for the services afforded by the business. As a member, you are an owner of the association and, as such, are partially responsible for its continued existence. Remember that the services that members receive are possible only through the efforts of volunteers.
