Update for March 23, 2023
The Metropolis Extended the Deadline for Reservations
The Metropolis has extended the deadline to reserve your room until April 6, 2023 for the discounted rate of $90! This gives you two more weeks to finalize your plans to attend the 2023 WASCOE convention! There is additional information on our convention available Conventions & Events page!
Don’t forget about obtaining your cash raffle tickets by contacting an Officer or Director. We are needing “baskets” and items for the scholarship auction. The auction supports our scholarship fund which provides opportunities to support our member’s children in their quest to continue their education.
Update for March 22, 2023
Over the last week, the website has undergone severe cleanup and updating as many of the pages were incomplete or contained outdated information. By no means is the website “complete” but each page has a consistent look and updated information. Each committee page contains our current chairpersons, their email address, and a link to the applicable NASCOE website page. Information and updates will continue to be provided on a more frequent basis than in the past. News relating exclusively to Wisconsin such as the recent Shared Management proposal and WASCOE meeting with the State Executive Director and State Committee will be found on the newly created “WI FSA News” page.
Several Open Committee Chair Positions to Be Filled
WASCOE is looking for several people to lead our County Office Advocacy and Programs and Negotiations committees. The County Office Advocacy committee is a great opportunity to promote the value of our County Committees and County Office employees. The Programs and Negotiations committee is a perfect opportunity to hear ideas from your coworkers and their ideas on ways to improve our program implementation and software! You can contact any of our officers to learn more and discuss these positions.
