I have worked with the Regional Field Organizer Rachel Fleming to organize a delegation of students to attend the JFC Hearing in Baldwin, Wisconsin on April 18. During this hearing we had an opportunity to advocate for UW System funding and tell legislators our personal stories about why education matters to us.

I have been working on a transition plan for the upcoming few months to hand over the responsibilities of the position to the incoming secretary. I want to ensure a smooth transition of governing documents and the operations of the UC governance website.

I met with Finance Committee Chair Allie Gardner and Executive Director Courtney Morse to discuss some ideas for the upcoming budget. We are looking into the possibility of having paid student leaders to work on United Council campaign. The details of the budget are still being worked out in the Finance Committee and will be presented to the Board of Directors in the coming months.

Thank you,
John Kronenwetter
United Council Secretary
