CWA Local 4502 is offering members an incentive for supporting local arts/sciences/historical organizations (ASH). CWA members can then choose a Kroger, Target or Cameron Mitchell Restaurants gift card (only one per member, per calendar year). Note: You may already have an eligible membership to the zoo, COSI, etc. that can be used for this program, as long as it is not expired.
This program will be offered during an annual open-enrollment period during which, the member will RSVP via email noting they will participate in ASH. The email should indicate which gift card is preferred and if the member plans to attend the May Membership Meeting (date TDB) or would rather pick up their incentive during office hours. In person pick up is required.
