In its role as an educator, WAMM creates material – documents, presentations and policy papers – that support the practice of mobility management and that educate and train mobility managers. Two of WAMM’s standing committees are dedicated to education and training. WAMM members not currently serving on a committee are encouraged to consider joining either the Professional Development or the Training, Conference and Meeting committees. A quick message to the Secretary can get you on a committee in a hurry.
WAMM’s first website was a wordpress blog. The creator lost login information and has not been able to maintain that blog. The last time it was edited was late spring 2010. This link will get you to that original list of resources. These documents supported some of the original mobility management projects in Wisconsin and, as long as they are available, may have some historical value as well as the intrinsic value that keeps this link active. In the event you choose to use any of these resources, please credit WAMM and, if you can, the original program. There are networking possibilities in this list!
