WSSDA holds elections twice a year; first for WSSDA board officers in early fall, and second, for WSSDA board members (also called director area representatives) in late fall at WSSDA’s annual conference. Elected positions to certain committees are also voted on at the annual conference.
After their election at the annual conference, WSSDA board members begin their terms at the conclusion of the conference. The board exercises general supervision over WSSDA’s affairs and approves WSSDA’s annual budget. The board also carries the duty of effecting policies and programs adopted at meetings of WSSDA. To learn more, see Article VII, Section 4 in the WSSDA Bylaws.
