From QCWA Headquarters

QCWA Bulletin 2014-006 - QCWA Takes a Major Step Forward           
 
Thanks to the leadership of President Oelke and the expertise of Webmaster
Roske, the QCWA Certificate Program now takes a significant step forward.
It is now possible for individual members, or for Chapter Officials, to
self-generate QCWA Longevity Certificates. If you request a 50 Year
Anniversary, 55 Year Anniversary, 60 Year Anniversary, or 65 Year
Anniversary certificate, you may download the certificate immediately to
your own computer and print the certificate at your leisure.
 
The procedure for securing these self-generated certificates is clearly
indicated on the QCWA Members Only web page. You will not be able to
download any certificate for which you are ineligible. When you activate
the download process for your certificate, there will be a delay of a few
seconds because the PDF file is large and will take a little time for the
certificate to transfer to your computer. As always with QCWA certificate
fulfillment, patience is a virtue.
 
Certificates that require sequential numbers, i.e., the 50 Year Continuously
Licensed Award, the higher level longevity certificates beginning at the 70
year Anniversary Award, the Century Club Award, and the Meritorious Service
Award, will still be ordered using the by now familiar process of requesting
the certificate from the Certificate Custodian. This ordering process is
automated and has been working well for some time now. Please continue to
order those certificates as you normally would.
 
Should you experience any difficulty with this process, please know that
our Webmaster is available to assist you in resolving your problem.
 
Thank you and please do enjoy those certificates that you have earned
through loyalty to QCWA.
