The Welsh North American Association strives to preserve, develop and promote our Welsh cultural heritage and traditions, including the Welsh National Gymanfa Ganu, and to do all things necessary and appropriate to accomplish these goals.
The WNAA and the NAFOW are run and coordinated by dedicated volunteers who donate their time and travel expenses. Aside from the WNAA International Headquarters office staff, WNAA board members and NAFOW volunteers are not monetarily compensated.
WNAA is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation.
New name, same great organization, Welsh North American Association - WNAA. At the September 3, 2011, Annual General Meeting of The Welsh National Gymanfa Ganu Association, in Cleveland, Ohio, 82 years after the first gathering was held in 1929 in Niagara Falls NY, members voted to change the name to better reflect the organization as it has become today.
For more than eighty years our premier North American-Welsh organization has safeguarded and nourished the best of the famed singing traditions of Wales. Our mission is to "to preserve, develop and promote our Welsh cultural heritage including, but not limited to, the Gymanfa Ganu, literature, cultural traditions, and to do all such things necessary and proper to accomplish and enhance the same."
If you are not currently a member of the Welsh North American Association, this is a good time to join. If you already enjoy the benefits of membership, consider upgrading to a Life Membership or sending a gift membership to a family member or friend.
Membership is made available to any person of Welsh lineage, or any person or organization in full sympathy with the stated purposes of the WNAA. Any questions contact membership@theWNAA.org
