Action Planning Meetings

All Wisconsin Underwater Archeology Association members are welcome to join us at these meetings to discuss organizational strategies.

WUAA is moving in an exciting direction and we’d love to hear your input about how the Association can better serve you and Wisconsin’s collective maritime history.
