We are off and running into 2017. If you would like to see what all lies ahead make plans to join us for our Annual Meeting on Thursday 19 Jan at Gumbo’s North. We will gather for an adult beverage at 5:30, followed by the meeting at 6:30. The staff at Gumbo’s will also have a simplified menu so that you can order a bite to eat during the meeting as well.
The annual meeting is a great time to offer suggestions as to other activities you would like to see the club participate in or sponsor. We operate to allow Aggies a networking opportunity in addition to supporting the Williamson County A&M Foundation with funds for scholarships to local high school students.
Get involved in the WCAMC
As we begin the new year we will be looking for individuals interested in serving on the WCAMC board for 2017. If you would like to be more involved and help move the club forward in a positive direction consider playing a bigger role. We will have officer and at large board positions opening up and would love to have you you join the team. We have two at-large board positions that will become available in January. This is a great way to get involved and assist in the direction of the club. These are 2 year terms and require just 4 meetings (once a quarter) throughout the year.

2017 Scholarship Applications available
If you are aware of a Williamson County high school student that has been accepted for enrollment in the Fall of 2017, scholarship applications can now be found on our club website. The deadline for scholarship applications is 1 April ’17, at which time our scholarship will spend extensive time reviewing each application. We will recognize and award the scholarships on April 21st at our local Aggie Muster Ceremony. wcamc.aggienetwork.com/scholarships
We will continue 2017 with our weekly events where hopefully you can find something that fits both your time frame, as well as your interest. Please also keep in mind that we are here to serve the members of our club, with that said we are always open to suggestions, ideas of other activities. Just keep in mind, it may also allow you the opportunity to step up and volunteer.
The first Thursday of the month will be our Reveille Breakfast at Rudy’s – Round Rock, where you can stop by on your way to work for a little social time and a great breakfast taco. On the second Thursday we will continue our Family Night at Double Dave’s. Make plans to join us at either the Cedar Park or Round Rock location for great pizza rolls and a night where you do not have to cook. On the third Thursday we will have our Networking Lunch. Whether you are in the market for a new job or looking for exceptional candidates as new employees, this is a great opportunity to connect with other Aggies. Finally, now that football season is over (a positive in many ways) we do not have any watch parties so we will resume our Howdy Hour on the fourth Thursday of the month.
We look forward to seeing familiar faces and welcoming all the new ones to all of our club activities. Remember to join our club page on Facebook so you can stay up to date with all that is going on around the county.
