Started in 2016 - Northern Wisconsin Training Days

In response to conversations between our Past President Karen Weinschrott and several northern clerks and a survey that was done in 2015, the WMCA Board of Directors approved trying a two-day clerk training in Northern Wisconsin and 144 clerks attended.  Check out the 2017 training days below.

2017 - 37th Annual WMCA Conference Site

“We want to give you our pitch for the 2017 Conference.
When you return to your home base
Run or walk or slide but don’t make an error.
Make your reservation and be a team player.
Steal the extra brochures and coach someone to come
Get in the game, swing! and hit a home run.
Hit it out of the park at the Kalahari. It’s a good call.
Come to the conference in 2017 and we’ll have a ball.”

Since WMCA is going to “Hit it Out of the Park for Education” this August, we felt we should have a Spring Training Camp in Northern Wisconsin this May.

Spring Training Camp at The Waters of Minocqua is a great place for “rookie” clerks to practice the basics and the seasoned clerks to refresh their skills with the latest in new laws and information.
Remember: On-line registration is the fastest and you can send a check in later.

Whether you are a new clerk or have been on the job for years, you can get the latest information available on many of the basic and statutory responsibilities you have in your municipality.
Are you confident about most aspects of your job but have some questions about one or two jobs? You can pick just the classes you need from the ala carte list.
Would you love to attend both days but can only get away from work one day or one morning or one afternoon? That works! Choose from the ala carte menu and attend when you can.



Want to attend but need financial help.  Click here to check out the WCEF scholarship available.

Make sure to make your hotel reservations asap.  Detailed information on the hotels can be found on page 4 of the Training Camp brochure.
