Board Officer Elections
As directed in our bylaws, the WSSDA Board has four officers that serve one-year terms: president, president-elect, vice president, and immediate past president.
The vice president is elected from the east side of the Cascade mountains in even-numbered years and from the west side of the Cascades in odd-numbered years. A school director cannot simultaneously serve as a board officer and as a statewide elected official or member of the state Legislature.
Call for 2019 WSSDA Officers
The WSSDA Nominating Committee is seeking candidates for officer positions who embody the vision, mission and goals of WSSDA. Desired candidates would have a minimum of one full term on their local school board, experience on WSSDA committees, and the ability and time to promote WSSDA’s interests to internal and external stakeholders over a multi-year commitment.
Positions up for election include:
- President-elect: This position is open to a member from any area of the state. The president-elect for 2019 automatically becomes WSSDA President in 2020, unless unseated.
- Vice president: This position alternates between directors from the east and west sides of the Cascades. This year it is open to a member from the east side.
There are two ways for someone to become a candidate. Please note the different deadlines:

A Message From Last Year's President
Are you looking for a way to share your experience, energy and passion for K-12 education? The WSSDA Nominating Committee is looking for Board members who will step up outside of their local districts to serve at the state level. As an officer, you will have an opportunity to put to use all the expertise you’ve developed over the years in your home district to help strengthen others across the state, sharing your wisdom, developing tools and policy that benefit the work we all do locally. Committing time to address issues that affect 295 districts and 1477 members is challenging and rewarding. You will be expected to be professional, compassionate, fair, and confidential at a higher level than you are currently. If you are interested in being a leader at this level, consider applying for one of the positions that are open for election this year.
