Welcome to the end of the school year, advisors! We have just a few quick notes for you today.
Board Leadership MessageIf you haven't seen it yet, please read the message from outgoing board chairman Jim Dickinson, Chairman Elect James Spencer, and Vice Chair Elect Connor Stakelin. You can download the PDF here!
Advisor Email ArchiveYou asked, and we listened: there is now an online archive for state emails on our website! This will hopefully make it easier for you to find the information you're looking for and save you from email searches in your inbox. This is the first email to show up in the archive, and the newest email will always be at the top. And, since some school districts may block our emails, we'll always post to Facebook and Twitter whenever a new email goes out. You can visit the archive at WAFBLA.org; just click on Advisors, then on Email Archive.
We'd also appreciate your feedback on the emails we send to help us tweak how much information you get and how you get it. If you'd take a minute to complete a quick survey, that'd be a huge help. Here's the link: https://wafbla.wufoo.com/forms/x6b15mp1szfcx2/
The calendar on our website is now a shared Google calendar. All events will be posted to it, and you can subscribe to it so you always have the latest updates. If you'd like to view events as a list, just click the agenda button at the top of the calendar. We have SBLCs for 2017, 2018, and 2019 on the calendar for you already! Check out the calendar, or by visiting our website and clicking Calendar in the menu bar.
Summer Advisor Info UpdateWe won't have many updates during the summer, but if you won't have access to your district email account and want to get the updates that do go out, just let me know what email address you'd like to have added to the mailing list for the summer. If you're retiring or changing schools, please send me an email and let me know so we can update our records.
State OfficersThe new officer team is outstanding, and they did a great job representing WAFBLA at officer training with the other CTSOs!
Because officers are so influential and are often involved with the organization well past their term, they now have individual, permanent email accounts that they can use to stay in touch and contribute to WAFBLA even after they've graduated and become hugely successful in life. All of the officers' emails are now formatted using their first name and last initial @wafbla.org. Here's a list of all of our amazing student leaders for the year, and their email addresses:
Thanks for a great year, everyone, and have an amazing summer!
