Nominations for National Board

WCA is welcoming nominations for our next President Elect.
The President Elect will serve a 6-year term on the Board. The term begins with President Elect (2012-13), then President (2014-2015) and finally, Past President (2016-2017). WCA is looking for nominees with outstanding leadership qualities, prior administrative experience and either national or local board experience.

To be considered please forward the following information by the deadline of June 30 to

1. Resume
2. Short bio
3. Brief statement addressing: why you want to be the President; what skills you will bring to the table; your leadership style and your vision for WCA.
4. 1 or 2 letters of recommendation

All information should be forwarded in WORD .doc formats.

Nominees should make sure that they have read the qualifications/descriptions of the positions and are fully prepared to take on the leadership roles.
Qualifications/Descriptions are available in a pdf format here. Log into the membership portal, click on my membership, and then click on WCA documents.

Members may nominate other members, but it is also possible to nominate oneself. Look to the talent in your own region for someone who is able and capable of taking the reins of the WCA. The nominee must be willing to invest the ample time, energy and resources necessary to fulfill the obligations of President-elect/ President/Past President.

The Nominations Committee will vet nominees. In the fall of 2011, the Committee will put forward 1 or 2 candidates to the WCA membership. Voting will take place in the winter of 2011. The elected candidate will take office on March 1, 2012.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

The Nominations Committee:
Yuriko Takata (chair)
Leslie Aguillard, Lisa Becker, Marilyn Hayes, Avinger Nelson, Phyllis Parnum, Barbara Wolanin (committee members)
