Registration is now open for the 2019 WEAC Summer Leadership Academy, July 29-31 in Stevens Point.
The strength of the state association lies within the strength of each and every local. The Summer Leadership Academy in Stevens Point is meant to empower local leaders in their work with members, the community, administration, elected leaders and the students they serve. So often we get caught up in the definition of a leader as one who holds an office or title, and we know that there are leaders within each local that hold no office, and yet they are leading the profession.
Members of a local team could have some members attend the Level 1 training (Foundational) while others attend the Level 2 training (Mobilizing and Power Building).
WEAC strongly encourages you to sign up a team of leaders and remember WEAC is covering your expenses (meals at the conference and lodging at William Hansen Hall). All rooms are single occupancy. Sheets, bedding and a towel are provided but you may want to bring your own. If you need any assistance, please contact WEAC, Becky Bachman, 608-338-0353 or 800-362-8034 x 232.
