Looking Back:

Given the continually evolving nature of COVID-19, the WRAP Annual Conference which was scheduled for September 23-25, 2020 in Marshfield, WI was canceled.  A one-day Virtual Conference on Sept 24, 2020 was presented.   The day started with the Annual Membership meeting, followed by four sessions and ended with the Installation of the 2020/2021 WRAP Officers.  If you are interested in seeing the flyer from that day, Here it is.

 

We will leave up past Conference schedules, brochure and poster in case you would like to refer to it.

The WRAP 2019 Conference Making a Splash that was held at Chula Vista in Wisconsin Dells, WI September 18-20, 2019 is a mere memory!  We hope you came away renewed and refreshed.
