Leadership

At WCET, leadership reflects the cooperative model and collaborative spirit of our organization. Many activities and programs are spearheaded by members. Committees and working groups lead the way, with guidance and support from our Steering Committee and staff. By putting decisions in the hands of our membership, we stay in close sync with members' interests, even as they evolve. This also keeps our administration lean, so we can devote more of our resources to getting results.

WCET Bylaws

In July 2015, the WCET membership voted to amend the bylaws. The most significant change to the pre-existing Bylaws was clarification on the election processes for the Executive Council and Steering Committee. View WCET’s Bylaws here.
