2016  Election News!
August 31 was the deadline for nominations This weekend I confirmed who wanted to run and who did not. We had one candidate for each office, except- no Treasurer and two for membership. Bless Beth Sier, she decided to drop her nomination and accept a nomination for Treasurer. (thanks) Therefore, we have 1 candidate for all the offices and no contested races. So at the next meeting of the BOD in October, we will validate those candidates, so I am happy to announce, that your 2017 Officers for the WCWA:
Position Officers for the 2017 Season
Chairman: Gary Michie
Vice Chairman:Johnny J.
