Our committees page lists these plus advisory groups and more. According to WSSDA operating policy:

  • Only directors who have been sworn in on their local boards are eligible to vote or run for positions up for election.
  • Any eligible director may be a candidate for the WSSDA Board or an elected committee regardless of their attendance at this meeting.  However, that director’s willingness to serve must be verified via email to their Director Area representative on the WSSDA Board and/or their Nominating Committee member. Click here for their email addresses.
