This fall, two positions on the WE Board of Directors are open for election:
Responsibilities for positions are described in the WE by-laws. Current WE members in good-standing are invited to submit nominations for other members (with their consent) or for themselves. Candidates should be WE members at the time of nomination. To facilitate the nominations process, we have created a nominations form, below. Nominations should include two statements: (1) a one paragraph description of the individual's qualifications (250 words maximum); and (2) a one paragraph vision for the position, if elected (250 word maximum). Nominations must be submitted no later than 11:59 PM on Wednesday, September 30, 2020.
Nominees will be invited to a call with membership to discuss their qualifications and interest in the position- tentatively scheduled for October 6, 2020. Shortly after this call, the Board will approve the ballot. The ballot will be made available to WE members immediately after approval. Voting will be open from October 7, 2020, ending at 11:59 PM on Monday, October 26. Election results will be announced the following week.
In addition to these positions, the WE Board also has a number of appointed Board positions. If you would like to be considered for one of these positions, please indicate your interest below. Appointed positions include:
Please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic we plan to host virtual Board meetings and events. No in-person attendance for events, meetings, or activities will be required of WE Board members during the 2020-2021 calendar year.
If you would like to further discuss Board positions and time commitments, please email Beeta Tahmassebi (email@example.com) and Patricia Moore Shaffer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you are interested in volunteering with the Board, but unsure if a Board position fits your schedule, we also have several Committee Chairs who are always interested in speaking with potential volunteers.
