From WMCA President Barbara Van Clake WCPC/MMC

Hello Fellow Clerks:

What an arctic blast this winter has been so far! On December 6th, another cold and blustery day, the WMCA Board of Directors met at the Grand Lodge Waterpark Resort in Rothschild to address the varied topics on our agenda. This beautiful north-woods themed resort hotel is one of the host accommodations for the 2014 WMCA Conference in August. So, if braving the waterslides and relaxing in the various pools and hot tub is your thing after a long day of education sessions, then book your room now to ensure soaking up a great conference experience as we ‘Climb to New Heights in Education.’
Our Manuals Committee started us off with information on the revisions and updates being made to the various policy and procedure manuals. The Officer’s portion will be completed for presentation to the board at our next meeting. The meeting continued with a discussion on whether a board member may hold two voting positions on the board at one time, and if board members should be limited in the number of committees they participate on, particularly as chair of the committee. These discussions resulted in some constitutional changes that you will have the opportunity to vote on at the annual conference business meeting.   read more>

It means the world to me...
