I hope that this message finds you all happy and well, and off to a great start on the school year.
I’m just returning from the WACA Fall Board meeting this weekend. So as usual, I have some notes for you.
First: If you are the right person to receive this email (you are an activity coordinator), cool; keep reading. If you not the right person, could you please reply and let me know. And if you do know who the right person is, can you let me know that information as well, please? Thanks! ;-)
Next: The Board meeting was in Vancouver this fall. We continue to scour the state, seeking good venues for our conference. It’s been a while since we’ve been to Vancouver, and they would like us to see their site again.
And: If you have any ideas/concerns/questions that you would like me to address with the Board please let me know. I’ll get the discussion going!
- AWSL conference is coming up in about a month (October 11-13), also in the Vancouver area. I hope that you’ll bring some students and enjoy the “student version of the WACA conference”.
- Undoubtedly, you’ve encouraged your students to be brave and confident and present a session at the AWSL Conference. So…. It’s not too early to start thinking about YOU presenting at the WACA Conference next March!
- There are also elections at the conference next March, including AREA 5 REPRESENTATIVE. I would like you to consider running for the board. I’ve enjoyed my time on the board and will serve in a dual role this year as WACA Past President and Area 5 rep , but would love to see someone step into this experience. ;-)
Okay, that’s enough for now. I’ll contact you later this week with lots of new items and details for you.
Have a great evening, all!
