Message from Outgoing WiSA Chair
It has been a great pleasure and privilege working with you and serving you as capacity as Chair in
the last couple of years.
In Dec 2019, I was asked to reconsider taking a second term as chair. This was a position that I took
up after thoughtful and careful consideration knowing how young WiSA was as an organization
and the expected great journey of growth ahead.
