A couple more quick items for you:
- Clock Hours: 10 clock hours are available for attending the instructional sessions of the conference. These are FREE (yep!), and they are available at the end of the conference AFTER THE CLOSING SESSION. No, I’m not using all caps to “yell” at you. I’m using them to emphasize when they are available – we have to maintain the integrity of our offerings, so they are not available before the closing of the conference. So please, plan for this time. We too are planning; we know that things were a bit slow last year, and we are planning on streamlining the process and offering MULTIPLE pick-up stations.
- WACA Board: We have elections this year for the following positions: President-Elect, Middle-Level Rep, Secretary, and Even # Area Reps (Areas 2, 4, 6, and 8). We also have an appointed position up for selection this year: the Partner Coordinator. If you are interested in any of these positions, check out the info (and application) on the website.
- Lastly, please consider presenting. You are the secret sauce for this conference. What you do really does help other people improve their programs. Go to wacaonline.org to sign up to present.
Please let me know what questions you have!
