Dear Members, We are changing our IT system and from 2017 we will send invoices by email instead of by post. Aside from benefitting the environment, this will save paper, printing and postage costs. By controlling our administrative expenses, we’re able to invest in the WAC and Learning Tree School for the benefit of our members, and keep our charges as low as possible. The invoice you will receive as a PDF attachment will still contain the normal orange payment slip with all the information you need. Invoices for membership and for the 2nd semester will be sent out in January

Sign up on the WAC noticeboard if you’d like via email. If you don’t receive the invoices you expect, please first check your spam folder, and then get in touch with us. If you think the email address you to join us gave us on joining is no longer correct, please let us know and we’ll update our

Potluck Club There will be a Potluck dinner in January at the WAC. Look out for details on the noticeboard or at www.wac.ch We’d love to see you there!
