Winter Update

February 4, 2022

The Fall Conference 2022 preparations are under way. This year's WWMA Fall Conference will be held in Appleton, WI at the newly remodeled Hilton Paper Valley Hotel on October 3rd and 4th. Start making plans now. The hotel is still undergoing conversion to the Hilton brand, but the room block for WWMA has been reserved. A loose itinerary will look different than in past years. Day One will include a presentation/training on EVSE testing equipment from TESCO Metering followed by a dinner banquet. Day Two will be our typical business meetings, breakouts, and caucus.

I would also like to share a farewell, as well as new job opening, for the Appleton Weights & Measures program. Keith Verhagen has announced his official retirement and will be leaving us within the next few weeks. Keith has been a past-president for WWMA, an inspector for Appleton for 14 years, a great teacher and mentor to me these past few years as I joined your ranks, and an all around cheerful and fun guy to be around. He has earned some well deserved years to spend with his wife, Lori, kids and grandkids "up north" in Pickerel. I'll miss our long days testing VTMs together and shooting the breeze - there were never any dull days.
