CWC to consolidate with CPA into one organization.
Effective 2006, companies in the reorganized CPA will fall into one of two categories: general (panel producers) or associate (users and suppliers) member. Each general member will be guaranteed a seat on the board of directors. Associate members can be elected to the board for two-year, staggered terms, with the number of associate members on the board not to exceed 25 percent of the board total. According to Tom Julia, CPA president, the associate members will have full rights on the board except election to the executive committee or as an officer.
As part of the reorganization plan, a new dues structure will be implemented in 2006. More than $100,000 in additional revenue is expected "as a result of the new dues structure and the addition of several members," Julia said.
Dues from CPA panel producers were more than $2 million in 2004, while CWC member dues totaled approximately $190,000.
