Nominations Needed for WySCA Board!
Great opportunities await you on our 2016-2017 board!
Any school counselor who has a desire to: expand their leadership skills, give back to our state and national community of school counselors, network with fellow counselors across the state and nation, and participate in professional development opportunities.
Board members are school counselors who are committed to serving others. We are a small but close knit board for our state association. Being a part of our board is a "behind the scenes" kind of position. Much of our work is completed through Gotomeeting, an online meeting place as well as shared Google documents. We formulate association documents that are approved by our members such as the five year strategic plan, annual budget, bylaws, etc. Our other largest task is to organize and carry out our annual conference to provide professional development for school counselors across the state. Other board member goals include increasing communication amongst school counselors across the state, providing member benefits, getting a membership database up and running and our own website to help disseminate information.
WHAT ELSE: Leadership Opportunities
Do you want to take your school counseling career to the next step? Then being part of our WySCA Executive Board is for you! This would include running for President Elect-Elect. The position of President Elect-Elect is a one year term. However, this position then moves up to President-Elect and then President and Past President. This position is ideal for training incoming board members for leadership opportunities in our state. As well as, once this person is in position of President Elect and President he/she is our state delegate for the American School Counselor Association. As a delegate, you have the voting rights on major decisions and changes made at the national level. And you earn a free trip to the ASCA national conference! Who doesn't want to travel and gain more knowledge about our profession while having an impact at the national level?
