July 15, 2020 | 2020 Golf Tournament Update

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and out of concern for the health and safety of our membership, we have officially cancelled the 1600 Association Golf Tournament this year. After reaching out to the membership and sponsors as well as discussions with the Fort Belvoir Golf Course, it became clear that holding a tournament was just not feasible. We want to thank all our members, WHCA, and our corporate sponsors who have supported the event over the years. We expect to be back on the links next year. We hope that our loyal membership, men and women of WHCA, and our corporate partners will be out in force with us. Please “stay tuned” for updates as we plan for the future.

Again, thanks to our 2019 sponsors:

Corporate Sponsors -- AT&T Public Sector Government Solutions, TWD & Associates, Verium Technology, World Wide Technology. Intelligent Devices, GuROO LLC, Evertz Microsytems, Omni Business Systems – FAX Plus, Lenaj Marketing, East Coast Musty Putters, TUVA LLC, First Command Financial Services

Individual Sponsors -- Col. Peggy Baldwin, Jesse Devitte, SGM Sean McSherry, Kelly Williams, Eric Campbell, The Legends (Bob Ohm, Steve Young, Gordon Aitken, Ed & Sharon Barger, & Al Algoso).

May 5, 2020 | (Submitted by Mike Ebbing) As you may know, there is a WHCA Task Force to Save Our Presidential Libraries/Museums. The group has assembled contact information for memberships in the various Foundations around the country. We are suggesting that members consider joining one of these Foundations (maybe the Foundation for which President(s) you served, or perhaps the Foundation in your geographic area). If you are a current member, you might consider elevating your membership for 2021 by at least one level.

Something else to consider - if you are not a current member of any Foundation, join one where we plan to have a WHCA Reunion in the near future! Our next planned reunion (either fall of this year or spring 2021) is the Carter Library in Georgia. We also have the Eisenhower, Nixon/Reagan and Bush 41/43 on our prospective list for the next couple years.

Since the Carter Library looks like our next destination, a good option might be to join that Foundation. I am sure they will appreciate the support, and (who knows) we may get President and/or Mrs. Carter to personally host our event! You can join the Carter Center Foundation with an annual single membership for just $25. Remember, that not only includes free admission to the Carter Library, but also ALL Presidential Libraries/Museums for ONE YEAR.

We would like to have a tracking mechanism to monitor the success of our campaign, so if you do join, please indicate that you are either a WHCA or 1600 Communications Member Alumni.


Annual Events

The Association typically sponsors a number of events each year, including the annual Shrimp Feast and Golf Outing (usually in conjunction with the WHCA Open House, June each year), and a winter holiday function to name a few. As our membership continues to grow, we look forward to seeing more new faces ... and, of course, the old ones! Unfortunately, the COVID-19 crisis has limited our ability to gather in groups and conduct our annual fundraising events. If you would like to support the Association by way of a donation, please contact our Treasurer for more information.
