Dear WACAC Members,

This marks our 60th post since the WACAC Communications Committee first launched WACAConversations in July. I am amazed by all that the committee has accomplished in such a short amount of time. In addition to launching this blog, we got Facebook and Twitter back up and running, developed a new look for the WACAConnection e-blast, and completed a face lift on the WACAC website.

I must admit that I was completely overwhelmed by the idea of chairing this committee when I was first approached about it. I probably shouldn’t admit (but here it goes) that I had never even tweeted when I agreed to the job. (Thank you, Sam, for showing me how it’s done.)

I am fortunate to have found myself surrounded by the most talented, dedicated, and tech-savvy individuals in the biz. I sincerely mean it when I say that everything the committee has accomplished is because of them. Thank you Lauren Popkowski (Oaks Christian), Terri Lewallen (Palos Verdes Peninsula), Jeff Morrow (Oaks Christian School), Meredith Britt (New Jewish Community High School), Sam Schreiber (USC), Grant Cushman (Chapman), Matt Miller (Chapman), Gabrielle McColgan (Sacred Heart Preparatory), and Sean Ohira (USC). You are simply amazing!

And thank you to all of our committee bloggers, guest bloggers, and, of course, our readers.

I can’t wait until the new year, when we’ll announce new bloggers, new series, and so many other exciting projects.

Have a marvelous and much-deserved holiday break.

Warm wishes,

Anne Aubert-Santelli
WACAC Communications Committee Chair
