“Ever since the first day I set foot in the ballroom (at WILS), I knew I had found my place and my best friends. The WILS family has helped me through all of my down points in recent years, and they’re re always there laughing with me during the high points. I couldn’t dream of better friends, or better relationships. And even though we’re in college now, we still make it a point to Skype every week!”
-Sarah S., WILS 2008
The WILS Alumni Association promotes and supports the goals and purposes of Wisconsin Leadership Seminars, which include providing continuing educational and leadership opportunities for WILS alumni. The Alumni Association encourages alumni to maintain contact with one another through activities and correspondence. Being an active member of the Alumni Association is the best way for student leaders to stay in touch with friends from the seminar and to meet other WILSers from past seminars.
The Alumni sponsors several OUTSTANDING events during the year at various sites across the state, including:
Alumni Reunions – The Alumni hold two or three weekend reunions annually at various locations in Wisconsin. Each reunion features a community service event, a speaker, a tour, various recreational events, and tons of fun!
Seminar Planning/Staff – WILS alumni are critical to the success of the WILS Seminar. Many alumni have served on the Seminar Planning Committee and Board of Directors over the years.
Over 80 alumni return each year to volunteer at the WILS Seminar as Junior Staff, Facilitators, and Adult Staff!
Service and Fundraising Events – Throughout the year our alumni volunteer at events throughout the state to fundraise for WILS or support other organizations. Events include car washes, corn roasts, brat fries, concession stands.
