Become Invovled – Serve on a Committee or Work Group

Friday, January 20th, 2012


As a member of MWCA we hope you will become involved in one of the many committees and work groups that we have. We depend on our members to help guide us and get things done. Some of the committees and work groups only meet once or twice a year and others have a busier schedule. Montana is a large state and travel can be an issue, but MWCA uses tools like email, conference calls, webinars and combining meetings with other functions to help lessen the impact.

The following are descriptions of the current committees and work groups. If you have questions or would like to serve on a committee please email Becky at
