The Board of Directors is a dedicated group of volunteers who meet on the third Tuesday of every month (with the exception of July, August and December) to discuss important matters relating to the WCA (such as budget and funding, new initiatives, community development and upcoming events).
WCA members are welcome to attend board meetings if they would like to make a presentation or proposal to the Board. Please contact email@example.com to submit information about your proposal before the next scheduled meeting. The date and time of the upcoming Board meeting is published on the third page of the Warbler each month.
