Set your Goals and be Rewarded for Trying!
This award program is based on participation and encouraging members to try new things.
The WCD Versatility Award (VA) is free to all members and offers them the ability to set their own goals and be rewarded for hitting milestones within a point system. Move at your own pace as your points accumulate for as long as you are a member. Join your fellow members and celebrate all that you have accomplished in the year at our Annual Meeting held each November.
