Watch for the upcoming 2012 WEA Annual Conference, November 2012, again in Stevens Point.


The WEA posts the presentation/paper for each conference participant on our website. We will do this every year in an effort to maintain an archive of the annual conference proceedings over time.

We hope to use this as a stepping stone to a WEA on-line journal of some type in the future.
