Call for Applicants - WAC Community and Staff Representatives (January 2022)

Announced by Lauren Clement on

The WCA Advisory Council (WAC) is seeking new members from both the community and staff to assist the council in its duties.

The application is open to all WCA members.

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, along with establishing consistent and bilateral communication lines between the community and the WCA Staff. The Community Representatives, along with Staff Representatives are a vital part of that process. More information about the main functions of the WAC can be found here: WCA Motion 20.2021.01.

The council has 2 sub-teams - Community Representatives and WCA Representatives. This announcement is for both Community and Staff representatives, which means that anyone in the community, including WCA Staff, is able to apply for this position. If you have never held a formal position in the WCA before, this an exciting opportunity to contribute towards making the WCA even better!

Current key projects of the council involve moderation and management of the WCA Forum and developing different channels to gather community feedback useful for the WCA.
