President's Welcome


Thank you to the wonderful advisors at UW-Milwaukee for hosting the largest annual WACADA conference in our organization’s history!  I hope those of you who attended found the information to be valuable.  Save the date for the 2014 WACADA Conference, to be held September 18-19 at UW-Eau Claire.  Thanks to Kim Wellnitz, and her planning committee for making preparations for the next conference.

The first Winter Professional Development Workshop for 2014 was held at Marian University on January 17 and was a great success.  If you were not able to attend this and are interested connecting with advising professionals, please consider the next event to be held on Thursday, February 13 (10am-2pm) at UW-Stout.  Visit the Professional Development page on our website for the schedule and information about how to register.

If you are new to the WACADA website, please consider becoming a member.  The cost is minimal at $15 and provides you with membership benefits, such as access to the online directory and an opportunity to apply for advising grants.

Please feel free to contact me or any of the members of the Executive board if you have questions or would like to learn more about WACADA.  You can reach us at

Be well,

Kami Weis, 2013-2014 WACADA President
