Colleagues, I have attached the WC draft planning document for your attention. In the absence of the full plan from WSSA we developed a WC roadmap to guide our activities. The dates and activities may need to change when we get the national plan. Please feel free to offer any guidance and/or wisdom so that we can improve and add value to our sector.
