WCA Annual Conference Resolutions Due Monday, June 24th!
Still Time to Submit!  The WCA Annual Conference will be held this year from September 22-24th in Dane County.

Each year counties have the opportunity to submit resolutions for consideration at the Annual Business Meeting, held in conjunction with the WCA Annual Conference.  Resolutions adopted at the Annual Business Meeting become part of the WCA Platform.

The WCA Constitution requires all resolutions be submitted to the WCA executive director no later than 90 days prior to the Annual Business Meeting.  Therefore, all resolutions must be submitted to the WCA office no later than 4:30 p.m. on Monday, June 24, 2013 to be considered at the 2013 Annual Business Meeting.  All resolutions submitted by the deadline will be sent to the appropriate steering committee, as well as the WCA Resolutions Committee, prior to action at the Annual Business Meeting.
