Chris Astrella, President

Hello everyone!

If you would have told me the Packers would be 1 game from the Super Bowl back in October, I wouldn’t have believed you…but they are! What a ride it’s been, I hope it lasts a little longer. With the start of the New Year, the Association has been busy! Renewal notices have gone out to everyone and Faith reported a record number of you have renewed via CVENT. The Board had its first meeting since October and some exciting things are on the horizon. First, an RFP was sent out for a new WMCA Website, and in February the board will decide which vendor to choose. The board also approved a Social Media policy and approved the creation of an official WMCA Facebook page; two things I’m personally excited about. Finally a Constitutional Amendment was passed and referred to the Manuals Committee that will clarify electronic participation and call-ins at Board meetings. All in all it was a great meeting and I look forward to the next meeting on February 3rd!

January is shaping up to be a busy month for me as well as I’ve had meetings with Steve from the Voter Advocacy Project, will have a phone conference with the President of the Administrator’s Association, a conference call with the League of Wisconsin Municipalities and the 2017 Conference Committee. I’ll be attending the IIMC Region VI Mid-year meeting in Minneapolis to give an update on the happenings of WMCA and create more connections through our colleagues in Iowa and Minnesota.    read more>
