It’s been a busy month for WATG! You’ve probably received emails and noticed our socials were filled with #GivingTuesday information. At the time of this publication, we don’t know how much money we raised, but whatever we raised, THANK YOU, to everyone who showed their support through donations, their own fundraisers, or just sharing our posts with others in your network. We couldn’t have done it without you. Your contributions help further our mission “to educate about and advocate for the needs of gifted in Wisconsin.”
Even though it’s only a few months after this year’s fall conference, we are looking ahead to next year’s conference. Currently, the Board is discussing possible themes, so be on the lookout for the 2022 Annual Conference theme shortly. At this point in time, we are planning to be face-to-face and are looking forward to reuniting with all of you at the Wilderness Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells.
And finally, we added three new Board Members -- Isabelle Kruger, Amanda Norin, and Jennifer Neuman. They bring new perspectives and fresh ideas to our Board, and we welcome them. They will be introduced in this month’s newsletter, so be sure to check out their information.
We hope you all have a happy holiday season!
Roxane Hagedorn, Executive Director
