Welcome to the Washington Municipal Clerks Association (WMCA) website. WMCA is a non-profit, all volunteer association. Thanks to our many hard-working volunteers, WMCA can provide quality educational events and networking opportunities for our members.
My theme for this year is “Life Begins at the end of your Comfort Zone”. I believe this with every ounce of my being, as growth does not come from a place of comfort, and if you never get uncomfortable, you do not grow. Opportunities are everywhere, you only have to open yourself to them. I challenge each of you to step out of that comfort zone and take on something new. Get involved with a leadership role in WMCA, there are lots of opportunities to network with your peers as a committee member, or chair, or board member.
WMCA members support and encourage the development of new leaders so that the succession of this organization and professionalism of the Municipal Clerk’s Office can flourish far into the future. No matter where you are in your career or professional life, there is room to grow. There is room to share knowledge with others and opportunities to conquer. You always have something to offer, and always have something to learn. You just have to reach for it.
My goal for this year is to get more people involved to build new leaders and encourage involvement from people with new perspectives and ideas. I want to ensure the stability of this incredible organization for generations to come. So, reach out in your professional life, reach out in your personal life. Accept those challenges and be prepared for growth. Growth may not be comfortable, but it is rewarding. Say yes to those opportunities because Life Begins at the end of your Comfort Zone! Let’s get uncomfortable!
