W E C INSTITUTE INC
September 1, 2010

Starting this privately run, scientific Non-profit was quite a challenge, there were very few them to emulate. In the beginning, everyone we came into contact with, regarding WEC, was supportive and excited about what we were trying to do. Starting something like WEC from scratch takes time (I may be a little impatient at times), but now we are starting to see a good deal of progress and the future looks great. At our last public event the response was almost overwhelming. Young and old alike surrounded our booth and I and a hand full of volunteers answered questions and demonstrated some of what we do at WEC. I was very pleased with the response from the public, it just reaffirms and redoubles my efforts to make the WEC Institute a premier research and development non-profit.
