PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

About Us

Thank you for visiting our WDTSEA website. We held our annual fall workshops in late September and early October in Menomonie, Wausau, Oshkosh, and Oconomowoc. A summer workshop was held in July in Madison. We are planning our spring conference in Wisconsin Dells the weekend of March 24th and 25th.

The workshops included updates from DMV, Organ Donation, BOTS, Bike Safety, and ATV/UTV information, as well as Behind the Wheel Teacher Training Theories.

========================================================

We are in the process of organizing the spring conference. If you have any suggestions, wish to present, want a vendor table, or would like to be a conference sponsor, please contact me at wstuessel@yahoo.com
