WACAA Committee Chairpersons

Below you will find the contacts for the various committees.  Behind each contact is when their term expires. Unless otherwise noted, terms are three year periods.  Terms expire June 30 and start July 1.  E.g. Jenny Extension (2018) would have started her term on July 1, 2015, and her term ended on June 30, 2018.

Do you have questions about what each of these committees/chair roles do?  Review the WACAA policies and procedures manual for more details, check out the NACAA Committee Members Handbook, talk with one of the Board of Directors, or contact the committee chair directly.
