COMMITTEES

Are you looking for a way to become more involved in WMCA, meet new friends, network with peers, and share your ideas? All of these opportunities await you as an WMCA committee member. Sign-up sheets will be available at the annual conference. However, if you are unable to attend the conference or just want to get a head start, fill out and submit the Committee Sign-Up form. Not all committees require your attendance at meetings. Our communications are regularly done by email, fax or phone. So even if you can't travel to the meetings, get involved! We need your input. Thank you for making WMCA a success.
