WSA changes name and YAPTA wins award.

The Washington Software Association, the largest statewide association of technology companies, IT departments and individual technology professionals in North America, has changed its name to the Washington Technology Industry Association.

The name change reflects the association's growing membership base, which began representing a budding software industry but now serves more than 1,000 businesses and 100,000 employees across a broad range of technology businesses.

The new name was unveiled during the association's 13th annual Industry Achievement Awards in Seattle.

The awards also honored the Bellingham-founded Yapta, Inc. with the Consumer Product of the Year award. Yapta--Your Amazing Personal Travel Assistant helps travelers book flights, get low lares and even receive credits from airlines when prices drop after purchase.

Other award categories include: Breakthrough Technology, Business Product, Service Provider, Technology Innovator, Best Use of Technology in Government, Nonprofit or Education Sector and Technology Leader of Tomorrow.
