WTS Central Region Council Appointed

July 2, 2013 03:37 PM

During the May 2013 Board meeting, the WTS International Board of Directors appointed seven chapter leaders to the Central Region Council. The council is made up of representatives from chapters within the region. The Council members are:

  • Kirsten Bowen, Northeast Ohio
  • Lisa Hoekenga, Greater Chicago
  • Ann Johnson, Minnesota
  • Jeanne Olubogun, Metropolitan St. Louis
  • Cynthia Redinger, Michigan
  • Frances Rourke, Columbus
  • Christine Sowinski, Wisconsin

WTS Chapter Development Director, Tiffany Jackson, will serve as ex officio on the Region Council. 

The 12 states included in the WTS Central Region are Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. There are currently eight WTS chapters within this region.

A council representative for Greater Indianapolis has not been appointed yet, but will be once a qualified representative is identified and appointed by the WTS International Board.

The Central Region Council conducted their first pilot strategy planning workshop on June 21, 2013, in Chicago, Illinois. The meeting was fully attended by all Region Council members and also by WTS President and CEO, Marcia Ferranto. During the workshop, the current state of the region and desired future state was discussed in order to determine the direction of programs and activities that will take place during the next 12 months of the regional model pilot.

WTS International would like to thank Jacobs Chicago for their support of the first WTS Central Region Council meeting.
