  • Title: Letter from the President | WMCA - Wisconsin Municipal Clerks Association
    Descriptive info: A Message from President Barbara Van Clake WCPC/MMC.. The association has spent time this past year evaluating the governance model portion of our strategic plan and the membership voted on the board composition at the conference annual meeting, ending with the composition remaining status quo.. Just remember, this strategic plan is a working document, subject to change or redirection as needed.. Meaning, certain portions may be re-evaluated or tweeked over the course of operations.. But, I feel that it is now time to refocus our energy on the main goal of our association s mission; education, training and networking.. This goal was the only one that we did not determine objectives for during our board s leadership training sessions during the last couple of years.. So, at the first meeting of the Board of Directors on August 23rd the attendees spent some time brainstorming and determining education enhancement goals and objectives.. Over the course of the year there may be times when surveys are sent out to the membership looking for your input.. I ask that you please take a small amount of your valuable time to take part in these surveys or questionnaires, as they help the WMCA to determine current and future membership benefits.. To help us move forward on education and training I have initiated a task force under the Professional Education Committee (PEC).. I visualize that the PEC and the newly appointed task force of Technology / Innovation will be the driving forces behind this years educational enhancements.. With the latest technology comes a unique educational opportunity for training and networking sessions via live web streaming, video-taped conference classes, telecommunication meetings, and other  ...   board members and committee chairs at meetings and would love to have all of our committees feel empowered to communicate new and innovative ideas for achieving their goals and objectives to the board at every opportunity.. No idea or discussion is off the table, and there should be no limit in thinking outside the box.. Let s take our association s communication to another level and have everyone in the loop as we get ready for the 2014 Conference in Rothschild, where we will be Climbing to New Heights in Education.. In closing, I would like to thank each attendee at the annual conference and the volunteers that give of their time and talents by serving on the Board of Directors, as District Directors, Committee Chairs and Members, all of which helps us keep this association relevant to our membership s ever evolving needs for education and professional development.. Although it is a somewhat scary endeavor to find yourself the designated leader of such a large association, I am not only ready, but willing, to give it my absolute best.. I have told myself to embrace the unknown and direct my energy toward leading our team efforts with a renewed sense of collaboration, and optimism.. When Clerks work together, anything is possible! So, let s all work together in being the premier source for the personal empowerment of municipal clerks in the state of Wisconsin through education, professional development and the promotion of excellence..

The WMCA Lifetime Achievement Award is the recognition by one s peers for a job well done, not just this year or last, but over a period of time.. As we well know, the municipal clerk most often serves longer than any member of a governing body, thereby accumulating a record of civic contribution likely beyond that of the governing body.. The clerk may be thought of as the silent public servant, but those in-the-know can testify to the scope of that service and its effectiveness..
