WRC Board Members
The Winfield Recreation Commission was created by the citizens of Winfield who petitioned the Winfield School Board to have placed on the ballot in 1955 the proposition that the “School Board establish and maintain a Recreation Commission of the citizens of the school district.” The vote for this proposition was widely approved in the April 1955 election.
The WRC Board of Directors is a 5-person board that oversees the Winfield Recreation Commission. The primary responsibilities of the WRC Board of Directors are to create policies and oversee the financial transactions/budget for the WRC. WRC board members serve staggered 4-year terms. 4 members are appointed by the USD 465 School Board and the 5th position is an at-large position selected by the WRC board members that were appointed by USD 465.
The WRC Board of Directors meet every month on the 2nd Monday at 1pm, located at the WRC Office. These meetings are subject to the Kansas Opens Meetings ACT or KOMA and are always open for the public to attend. Any meeting schedule changes will be posted at the WRC Office and a message will be sent out using Facebook.
