Our newly formed WCA Advisory Council (WAC) is looking for members to help with their mission!
What is the WAC and what do they do?
The biggest task of the WAC is to be an intermediary between the community and the WCA Staff - to give the community a voice when important topics are being discussed. The Community Representatives will be a vital part of that process. More information about the main functions of the WAC can be found here: WCA Motion 20.2019.01
The council will have 2 sub-teams - Community Representatives and WCA Representatives. This announcement is for Community Representatives, who will make up the majority of the council and will not be members of WCA Staff, meaning that anyone except WCA Staff can apply. If you have never held a formal position in the WCA before, this an exciting opportunity to contribute towards making the WCA even better!
Dear WCA Community,
Starting from January 2019, the WDC will issue a public overview of its activities every month, in order to give a better perception of the work of the Committee to the Community.
We realize that our work is mostly behind the scenes and that it’s based on confidentiality, which is something that can easily lead to the spreading of false rumors and confusion. The WDC would like to establish a routine in its communication towards the WCA Community, to avoid misunderstanding and disinformation and to provide some insight about its activities.
We are happy to announce that we have a new Council Leader. Daniel Sheppard has been appointed as the Leader of the WCA Advisory Council (WAC).
Daniel was selected by the WCA Board, in accordance with Section 4.1 of our Motion 20.2019.0 about WCA Councils.
We wish Daniel the best of luck in fulfilling his new role!
Daniel Sheppard was among the three applicants who applied and his candidacy document (and the others) can be found here if you are interested in viewing them.
