From 2014-15 WMCA President Karen Weinschrott WCMC

Greetings Everyone,

Wow, it’s hard to believe that the 2015 Annual Conference is just around the corner and my term of office as your WMCA President is about to conclude. I’d like to provide you with an overview of some of the activities that took place over the past several months.

I have traveled to all corners of the State attending District meetings, attended conference meetings in La Crosse, traveled to the Minnesota conference, testified at the GAB hearing in Madison, represented WMCA at Wisconsin Town’s Association meetings, and conducted Board of Director meetings held in Plover. I also participated in many committee meetings both in person and by teleconference.  

The Board of Directors met six times; five in-person meetings and one teleconference. The first meeting was held in August at last year’s conference.

  • Adopt-A-Clerk Program - We match new clerks with a seasoned clerk from the same type and size municipality.  Call on them when you have a question.
  • The Clerk’s Listserv (e-mail network) - an invaluable tool for communicating with over 600 other WMCA clerks instantly.  A place to ask questions and get quick answers.
  • The WMCA Clerks Manual - The Clerk’s manual is a practical and useful guide to the new Clerk and the old pros. It is a reference guide of the basic duties of a town, village or city clerk.
  • Monthly E-Newsletter - the WMCA newsletter, emailed monthly, is filled with up-to-date information about upcoming events, recent happenings and pertinent information for members.
  • Professional Education - from one-day workshops to a wide selection of classes during our three-day conference.
  • Certification - become a Wisconsin Certified Municipal Clerk and ultimately a Wisconsin Certified Professional Clerk
  • And much more.
