        • Director's Meetings (held 2x/year) - Domestic violence, sexual assault and tribal executive directors to learn, share, challenge and enhance sexual assault and domestic violence services in our state.WCASA co-sponsors the meeting with American Indians Against Abuse and End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin.
        • Paths to Healing Conference (held every June) - Paths to Healing is a day-long conference that provides support and explore what we need to do as a community to respond to the needs of sexual abuse survivors. It is intended for child sex abuse survivors – particularly male survivors – supportive allies, advocates, health and mental health professionals, and law enforcement.
        • Northern Training (held every July) - Each year, American Indians Against Abuse (AIAA), End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin and WCASA present annual training for rural and tribal programs. This training was designed for staff of Wisconsin rural and tribal domestic and sexual abuse programs. Advocates of all experience levels are welcome.
           
        • Sexual Assault Victim Advocacy School (SAVAS) (2x/year) - This training addresses the needs of being a victim advocate - whether working the crisis line, providing medical or legal advocacy, working with a community coordinated response team or more. Participants will have the opportunity to practice skills necessary to prove comprehensive advocacy for victims. New sexual assault advocates, domestic violence victim advocates, and other professionals who want to learn more information about sexual violence are encouraged to attend.

        • Survivors & Allies Task Force Meetings (2x/year) - Survivors and Allies Task Force Meetings are held to bring Wisconsin survivors and their allies together so they may network and discuss new developments in the sexual assault movement. It is important to make the connection between the two groups. The purpose of the meeting is to provide survivors with opportunities to voice their concerns and suggestions about current issues that the sexual assault movement is facing.

        • Voices of Courage Awards Ceremony/Luncheon - The ceremony honors the outstanding work of Wisconsin individuals and organizations that have exceeded the very highest standards in their dedicated efforts to end sexual violence and support survivors.
