Got ideas of your own? Join the W@W Steering Committee and help shape the next retreat!

The Steering Committee holds lunchtime meetings between October and April and consists of the following Sub-Committees, who may also meet separately according to their needs. This is a great way to meet other staff, build your skills, and use your creativity. As a bonus, serving on the Steering Committee also guarantees you a spot at the retreat. For more information, email the 2011 Committee Chairs.

If you are unable to serve on a committee but would like to help with fundraising, please consider selling Sees Candy Bars in your unit! Contact the Fundraising Chair for more information.
