Conference Opportunities (outside of great sessions and awesome networking)

 
1. Clothing Swap:  Just in time for school, there will be a clothing swap at the WAEE Conference. Conference attendees are invited to bring lightly worn/used clothing and accessories and swap them out for new-to-you wardrobe additions. If swapping isn’t your thing, but you’d like to clean out your closet, clothing donations will be accepted. All unclaimed clothing and accessories will be donated to a charitable cause.
 
2. Fashion Show:  Have you ever wanted to walk the runway? You have the opportunity to be WAEE’s Next Top Model! Participants will travel to Goodwill and have the chance to put together outfits to be modeled during a one of a kind EE fashion show. WAEE’s Goodwill Fashion Show will be held during the exhibit social on Thursday evening. Models of all ages, shapes, and sizes are invited to show off their creativity in putting together a trendy outfit on a thrifty budget. Prizes will be awarded in various categories. All clothing purchased for the fashion show will be paid for by our generous sponsors.

 

 

Please note: If you would like to be a model for the fashion show, it will require your participation for most of the day.

 
3. WAEE Mentorship Program: The Mentorship Program accomplishes WAEE's mission of networking by linking experienced environmental educators to those who are new in the field. There are no set criteria for being a mentor or mentee. Mentors should be available to answer questions, serve as a reference, or even provide practicum experience for their mentee while mentees can ask questions, look for potential employment, and even use their mentor as a reference. Mentorship program participants meet at a WAEE event, share contact information, determine a goal for the partnership, and share a conference meal. Mentorship activities are suggested in the WAEE monthly newsletter. If this is something you’d like to do, just sign up when you register for Fall Conference.
 
4. WAEE Scholarship Program: Scholarships are offered to educators and students to help offset the costs of attending the conference. Scholarship applications are now being accepted and are due to the WAEE Office by July 15, 2013.  Learn more

 
5. WAEE’s E-Recycling Program: Each year, WAEE offers conference attendees an opportunity to responsibly recycle old inkjet cartridges, cell phones, digital cameras, GPS, mp3 players, and/or lab top computers. In return, you are helping WAEE raise funds. Money raised will help the organization continue offering high quality programs.
 
6. Donate Auction Items: Each year WAEE receives a wonderful assortment of gifts from many talented members. Have something to share? Please consider donating your gift to be auctioned in the silent or live auction on Friday night. To help with our planning, please mark on the registration form if you plan to contribute an item.
 

7. Graduate Credit Opportunity: Need a graduate credit?  Get one at the Fall Conference.  WAEE has partnered with UW-Stevens Point to offer a 1 credit graduate level course while attending the Fall Conference.  Natural Resources 610 is being offered by Dr. Dennis Yockers.  The goals of the course include providing educators with EE professional development experience, providing information and curriculum materials that will assist educators in the integration of EE in their programs/classrooms and to provide leadership development experiences.  Learn more

8. Pre-Conference Workshop: Want to fill your group facilitation toolbox with experiential, brain-based techniques to inspire and motivate participants, create a positive and supportive learning environment, and facilitate meaningful reflection and group dialogue. Help learners make connections between educational experiences and real life situations and take ownership and responsibility for their learning. Join WAEE & Jen Stanchfield for a Pre-Conference Workshop on Tuesday, August 6 at the EcoPark in La Crosse.  Learn more

Where to stay?

 

WAEE has a block of rooms reserved in the newly renovated Eagle Hall on the UW-LaCrosse.  Lodging is INCLUDED in your registration fees.  The rooms included in the registration fee are doubles, which means you will be sharing a room with one other person and a bathroom with one adjoining room.  You have the option to upgrade to a single room on the registration forms above for a small fee.  All the rooms are air condidtioned.  To see a layout of the rooms visit UW-LaCrosse's Eagle Hall Map

 


WAEE's Event Cancellation Policy:

All requests for refunds must be made in writing. WAEE reserves the right to deny refunds. Attendees may cancel their registration with the applicable cancelation fee if written (via mail, fax or email) notification is sent to WAEE by two weeks prior to the start of the conference (identify exact date for each event).  A cancellation fee of $30 will be subtracted from the registration fee and the remainder will be refunded via a check. Cancellations made after the cancelation deadline and no shows for the conference will result in forfeiture of the entire registration fee, except for workshops or fieldtrips that are cancelled due to inadequate enrollment.

In the event the registrant is no longer able to attend the conference, substitutions of a business colleague/coworker will be accepted.  The original registrant must submit the replacement's name and contact information in writing to WAEE.

Exceptions to the Cancellation Policy: WAEE recognizes that serious issues may arise that could prevent an attendee from cancelling their registration within the timeframe described above. There are several acceptable reasons for cancelling after the cancellation deadline.  Including, but not limited to:

  • Serious illness or disabling injury– either you or a family member
  • Death in the family
  • Court appearance or jury duty
  • Unexpected military duty call-up

 No Show Policy
If you were prevented from attending the event, you may request a refund minus the cancellation fee in writing to WAEE within fourteen (14) calendar days following the final date of the conference. The written request must be accompanied by meaningful documentation supporting the claim that the situation physically prevented the registrant from attending the conference, through no fault on the part of the attendee. Approved requests will be issued a refund less the applicable cancellation fee of $30.
