Board Officer Elections

Apply to become a WSSDA board officer candidate by May 26, 2020!

Bylaws state that the WSSDA Board will have four officers who 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 can’t simultaneously serve as a board officer and as a statewide elected official or member of the state Legislature. If an officer seat becomes vacant for any reason, a special election is held.

Two open positions

Each year, WSSDA elects a president-elect and a vice president who serve one-year terms. However, the president-elect will transition to board president and then immediate past president, resulting in a total of three years on the WSSDA board.
