If you were at our 2015 conference in San Diego last fall, you know what an engaging and dynamic conference it was. From the high energy dance troupe that kicked the conference into gear to the inspiring panel of “game changers under 30” who capped things off, the conference featured thought-provoking speakers, hands-on professional learning, and lots of time for fun and networking with colleagues indoors and out.

We want 2016 in Madison to be our biggest conference yet - with you and as many brand new attendees as we can get! Watch the video and get excited to promote 2016 in Madison!

Early Bird Deadline is August 31.

WAEE Introduces the Legacy Fund

The WAEE Board has created a Legacy Fund to be used for special projects outside of the normal WAEE budget.This is not a grant program and all funds requested for use must pass a majority board vote. Members of WAEE are encouraged to approach board members with projects that fall within one of the target focus areas of WAEE and strengthen the organization and bring awareness around the state. The board member will share the idea with the entire board at the next scheduled BOD meeting. This board member will be responsible to oversee the project and become a sponsor of the funds and will make a final project report to the board. The board believes that supporting statewide projects outside the budget is an important part of the WAEE mission and a duty of the organization. For more information contact the WAEE office at or call 715-346-2796.
