Our annual agenda is intended to combine learning, networking, and skill building. Through educational sessions you will learn about the legislative session, how to effectively engage in it, and how to build campus involvement. Through networking you will connect with your peers to learn about issues impacting your college and region. As a college delegation and in regional groups you will hear from all interested students looking to run for WACTCSA Office. You will then vote to elect your 2018-2019 WACTCSA Officer. Building on networking and voting skills you will be well poised to successfully engage in the 2019 Legislative Session.
