WCCHA is ceasing operations as of 2021. A team of tireless individuals built this organization, and many more tireless volunteers continued their mission for decades. Faculty members all over Washington State benefited in myriad ways from the lively conferences, prestigious awards, and stunning literary magazine, Crosscurrents. Due to a lack of dedicated volunteers to continue the leadership needs of the organization, WCCHA will meet it’s final sunset in 2021. If you are a dedicated faculty member at a Washington State Community College, who would like to form a leadership team to support and revive this organization and publication, contact Michael Mills: Former Editor in Chief of Crosscurrents at mmills@pencol.edu (360) 417-6462 to inquire about transitioning the organization to a new leadership team.
