  • WSCA Elections

2018 Election:  THE WSCA BOARD NEEDS YOU!

The Wisconsin School Counselor Association (WSCA) needs dedicated school counselor-advocates to become members of the WSCA Governing Board of Directors.  The WSCA Board is focused on the profession of school counseling, educational leadership and meaningfully impacting college and career readiness for ALL children in the state of Wisconsin. WSCA continues to play a vital role in promoting the profession of school counseling to all our stakeholders on a state, regional and national level.  It is through the dedication of the members of the WSCA Board that we ensure school counselors remain leaders in the field of education.
 
We strongly encourage school counselors interested in having a significant impact on our profession to serve on the WSCA Governing Board of Directors.  We are currently seeking Board of Directors candidates to represent the diverse needs and perspectives of all Wisconsin school counselors. This is a three-year commitment. We have recently transitioned to the policy governance format for our WSCA Board, and will have a nine-member Board of Directors which works separately from the coordinator team.  Applications will be accepted until December 1, 2017, at which point the Elections Committee will vet the candidates and select a slate of three to be brought to the elections in February.
