From 2016-17 WMCA President Chris Astrella WCPC

Chris Astrella, President

You know for the past couple of months I’ve been trumpeting summer’s arrival, but it seems all we’ve gotten is rain! I hope those of you who have had too much rain have been able to weather the storm (no pun intended) and get through it ok. Finally, it looks like we’re all going to get a break from the rain and dry out for a week or more. FINALLY.

On the WMCA front, things have been quiet at the board level, but the 2017 Conference Committee has been gearing up for the Kalahari next month. We have one final meeting on August 3rd to finalize everything and then it’s off to conference! Just some quick reminders: don’t forget to purchase your conference t-shirt, the President’s Tailgate is included in your registration fee, and there is a block of rooms at the Wintergreen Hotel (across the street or about a 3-minute drive) from the Kalahari.  read more>
