With the new year comes some changes at the WSGA as our board meetings go. Our next meeting is scheduled for 1/15/20. We are in the process of migrating our meetings from the current IRC-style of meetings to Microsoft Teams video conference meeting. This will speed up our meetings significantly and we should get a lot more done in a smaller window of time. We are looking at using our Facebook page to stream our meetings for folks to watch and pose questions during the meeting. This is still a work in progress. For now, stay tuned on our Facebook page as well as this website for more info on attending/participating in our board meetings.
