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 incentive to be deployed at unit meetings:


One $50 gift card will be raffled off at a unit meeting held sometime in June-December.
NOTE:  Unit leadership will provide the winner’s name to WTA.  The gift card will be mailed to the winner no later than January 14, 2022.
