The WPA began as an informal alumni society for the Department of Philosophy at the University of Windsor. Shortly after the inception of the WPA it became a loose knit association of alumni from the department of philosophy, philosophers located in Windsor, and generally friends of philosophy within the region. This more general association was intended to be an open group that supports the development of a critical community of the philosophically minded within the region. The WPA supported both student and independent scholarship and encourages philosophers to bring their research beyond the bounds of the university and into the public sphere.
In May of 2013, the WPA transformed again into the WP(A)A, a registered Non-Profit Corporation and Charitable Organization in Ontario. The notion behind this latest transformation is to establish a non-profit artist organization (akin to Artcite, Windsor) dedicated to supporting independent philosophical scholarship and philosophers intervention events within the greater Windsor region.

WP(A)A First Annual AGM

WP(A)A First Annual AGM
To be held:
Saturday March 15, 2014
@ The Walkerville Brewing Company
525 Argyle Road, Windsor
2 until 4 pm

Each year, as a registered not for profit and charitable organization in Ontario, the WP(A)A is required to hold an Annual General Meeting.  This is a good opportunity for those interested in becoming more active in the process of brainstorming and planning upcoming programming for 2014-2015 to do so.  We will also hold elections for the executive committee for this organization at this meeting.
Current Executive Board Members:
Grant Yocom (President)
Jeffery Noonan (Vice President)
Jeffery Renaud (Vice President and Treasurer)

Though we do not have a formal membership currently, if you show up to this event (or have shown up to past events), we consider you a member and would warmly welcome your participation and input.  Hope to see many of you reading this on Saturday!
