Meet the MWSF Community Advisory Board

MWS Community Advisory Board Established. Members Selected.

The MWS Foundation recently established our first Community Advisory Board (CAB). The idea behind the CAB is to put in place a more efficient process to gain input from the MWS community. We have selected 14 members (10 U.S. and 4 International) from the MWS community to begin serving a 2-year term. These CAB members will be asked to provide input/ideas/suggestions to the MWS Foundation thru participation in conference calls, email communications/surveys and individual one-on-one phone calls with Foundation Board Members. In order to do this, they will interact with their own networks within the MWS community to share information and gain feedback/input that can be shared with the MWS Foundation.

Conference Cancellation

COVID-19 Update

The MWSF board has decided not to delay the inevitable. The 2020 International Conference is officially cancelled. As upsetting as this is, we feel that we must act now to allow everyone to move ahead with the necessary cancellation of travel plans, etc. Registrations will be refunded as soon as possible.   Please bear with us as we work to develop a new date for our conference. For those of you who have booked travel, we will be working to come up with an official cancellation notice that may help when you contact your airline. Please email me at debyc@mowat-wilson.org

Sincerely,

Deborah Curry
