New Slate of Officers Elected at Annual Meeting!
On January 9, 2016, WRC members elected a new slate of officers. Read about them here. Outgoing President Jennifer Neubauer thanked her officers and board for their constant support and dedication over the past two years. She also recognized former WRC Presidents and thanked them for their contribution and past leadership, noting that she had felt like a "midget standing on the shoulders of giants" while at the helm of the now 75-year old WRC. Following the brief members' meeting, speaker Michael J. Lotus offered fascinating insight on his and James C. Bennett's book: America 3.0, Rebooting American Prosperity in the 21st Century—Why America’s Greatest Days Are Yet to Come (Encounter Books, 2013). Read about the event here.
