Thank you, members of the Washington Conference Branch Women’s
Missionary Society for your enthusiasm and zeal for the work of missions.
Immediately following the 69th Annual Conference Convention, plans were
implemented to lay the ground work for Conference Year 2018-2019. An
Executive Board Meeting was held on April 28, 2018, to discuss plans for the
year. The Area Chairs, WCB Officers, Local Presidents, and Life Members were
present to share their ideas and concerns for expanding Mission work.
The Conference selected Theme is: Leadership with Passion, Purpose and
Objectives for the Conference Year:
• Increase active membership by 10% in Local Societies.
• Establish a more inclusive role for Associate members.
• Increase the participation of Young Adult Missionaries at all levels.
• Increase our Sustainable Goals work in the Areas of: #1 No Poverty, #2 Zero
Hungry, #3 Good Health and Wellness, and #4 Quality Education
A calendar of events was established, and the Conference now has a frame- work to move forward on upcoming projects and events through March 2019. A couple of adjustments were made to the Conference calendar because of the date change for Annual Conference and the Quadrennial Convention. The cost for supporting this event was also a contributing concern for the change. Therefore, the Conference will not host the Annual Recognition Luncheon in January but will instead convene the Annual Winter Workshop in that time frame.
Monthly WMS Conference Calls will resume the first Monday of each month, beginning August 6, at 9:00pm. Conference call number is 712-770- 4010 Access Code#124077.
Stay Connected with what is going on in the Conference through your local president, group emails, and our website- www.wcbwms.com. We recently took a survey to determine the number of missionaries who access Facebook. We were surprised at the low numbers user response. We are developing a survey monkey for a greater response pool. Please respond if you received the survey.
