WCRP Introduces New Executive Director
Let me introduce myself. I am Deb Brunett and I am so privileged to be your new executive director. I really appreciate the warm welcome I have had so far from the WCRP/WACTAL family.
The experiences and skills that I bring to your organization vary from educating students and adults to setting up conferences and workshops to everything in-between - including running the office of our family’s masonry business.
I have had the pleasure of getting to know a couple of our Merrill hometown auto collision businesses. KB Body Shop after a deer decided he wanted to travel as a hood ornament on our van and One Way Collision when our Buick was sideswiped in a parking lot! Both companies provided top notch service to us and I now know that their business practices align perfectly with WACTAL’s Member Code of Ethics. I hope to meet the rest of the WCRP/WACTAL organization under better circumstances.
As I enter this new chapter, I would be remiss if I did not thank your outgoing Association Administrator, Sue Peterson. She is one of the foundational pillars of WACTAL and will be a very hard act to follow! Sue has been instrumental in helping this transition to be as seamless as possible and I’ve learned a lot about WCRP/WACTAL from her in a short space of time. Good luck and blessings, Sue, as you begin this new chapter of your life. Enjoy!
I’m looking forward to being your executive director. My door is always open. Please feel free to contact me any time with your ideas and concerns. Cell # 262.542.7707.
