A message to all WCTA members regarding member services

To fill the ever important role of Administrative Assistant, we have since brought on Leslie Carnell who graduated from the Kwantlen University turf program, works at the Rupert Park Pitch and Putt in Vancouver and who you may have met at the registration desk at our 2010 and/or 2012 conferences.
