Dear Valued Member:

It’s time to ask you to consider corporate sponsorships for the coming season. The 2018/2019 Sponsorship year kicks off in September with our Annual Golf Outing at Musket Ridge, followed by meetings in October, December, February, March and April. The funding of scholarships for students majoring in railway engineering is a primary focus of W.A.R.E.S. If your firm is a sponsor, we hope you will renew. If your firm is not, we hope that you will consider the opportunity to enhance the profession by helping to educate young men and women to pursue the field of railway engineering.

Through our Sponsorship Program, we make contributions to regional universities, including a new sponsorship at Gateway Community College. Over the years, through these contributions W.A.R.E.S. has provided numerous scholarships to students studying railroad engineering. Through this yearly sponsorship drive the majority of our scholarship funds are raised and 100% of the proceeds go to the scholarship fund. Each year we ask you to consider a corporate sponsorship contribution to support the scholarship fund. A minimum of $400.00 would be greatly appreciated, as well as any additional funds you might wish to contribute. To indicate your participation, W.A.R.E.S. will include your company’s name in a list of sponsors on our website, and the program cards distributed at each meeting.

Please send your tax deductible sponsorship contribution of $400.00 and any additional amount your company may wish to contribute, in a check made payable to WARES, to the above address. You can also visit our website by clicking here for alternate methods of payment. Even if you do not wish to be a sponsor, but are interested in attending meetings, return the enclosed invoice with the “Put me on your mailing list” box checked.

The Washington Area Railway Engineering Society is beginning its 37th year of providing Washington-Baltimore area railroad and rail transit professionals the opportunity to meet informally and discuss their common interests. Your participation in W.A.R.E.S. by sponsorship and attendance contributes to understanding the rail and transit industry’s needs and interests. Sponsorship also enhances our future by encouraging young people to join the profession.

We wish to thank those who have supported WARES over the years and hope that you will continue to find your association with us enjoyable and beneficial. Thank you all for your consideration and please submit your sponsorship contribution by April 27th, 2018 for the upcoming year’s scholarships. I look forward to seeing you and other members of your firm at 2018/2019 WARES events.

If you have any questions, please call me at (570)-295-3572 or email me at pschuler@atlantictrack.com.
