WTA County Unit Stimulus

Unit meetings are critical to WTA.  It is where we network, learn, and develop capacity with state Representatives and Senators.  All town elected and appointed officials are encouraged to attend county unit meetings.  Without effective unit meetings, town government would be much different.  Simply, a lot of our political influence is generated at and much of our network-based learning occurs during successful and well attended unit meetings.
COVID prompted a wide variety of approaches to unit meetings.  Members responded to each uniquely, some positively and some with decreased attendance.  In order to not only return to our previous level of success with unit meetings, but grow that success, WTA is offering the following incentives to be deployed at unit meetings:

Drawing #1:

One free Annual Convention registration will be raffled off at a unit meeting held sometime in June-September.  If a winner knows on the night of the drawing that they cannot attend, then a new winner should be drawn.

Drawing #2:

One $50 gift card will be raffled off at a unit meeting held sometime in June-December.

Attendance Incentive:

The unit with the best attendance at a unit meeting held between June-September will receive $250 for their unit.  Spouses and guests should not be included in the count.  The unit with the highest percentage attendance will be deemed the winner.
NOTE:  Unit leadership will provide the winner’s names to WTA.  The convention winner will receive a non-transferrable certificate from WTA to be sent in with their registration no later than October 4, and the gift card will be mailed to the winner no later than January 14, 2022.
Thank you to Scott Construction and Kwik Trip for sponsoring these drawings and supporting this effort!
