From WMCA President Barbara Van Clake WCPC/MMC

Hello Wisconsin Clerks,

I spent my 4th of July holiday volunteering at our community celebration events. Nothing says summer here in my City of Omro than the running of the Quacker 500 duck race, when more than 2000 little yellow rubber ducks float towards the finish line within the park channel of the Fox River. Once again, my ducks ticket number did not float to winning glory, but watching the excitement of the onlookers on a beautiful summer day reminded me that my year serving as your WMCA President is drawing to a close.

I think that my favorite part of being President this year was experiencing the privilege of representing our great organization at the other state conferences, and especially at the IIMC conference held here in our own great state of Wisconsin in the City of Milwaukee. That was a unique opportunity that not many of our Presidents will get to experience, and I feel extremely fortunate having done so. The networking and learning from other conferences and their leaders, has initiated many new ideas and discussions on how we can improve our own organization and keep us relevant to our members needs as time, legislative changes and technology evolve.  read more>

It means the world to me...
