WASDA Proposes New Membership Type – Affiliate Membership

WASDA’s Board of Directors and Membership Committee are proposing the addition of an Affiliate Membership category. 

Affiliate Membership in WASDA would encourage organizations that advocate for federal, state, and local policies – that affect the businesses of Distributor and Manufacturer Members – to become members. 
It’s a win, win. Affiliate Members could educate WASDA members about advocacy and in exchange gain substantial industry expertise that WASDA members provide.
Our goal is to build connections that will strengthen communication both within and about the industry. Voting members (Distributors) will be asked to approve a bylaw change reflecting this new category during the General Business Session of the upcoming Fall Meeting & Partnership Forum at noon on October 18, 2016. 
Please review the eligibility requirements of the proposed membership category here and submit any comments to wasda@fernley.com.

Seeking Nominations for 2017 Board of Directors

WASDA’s Leadership Development Committee is seeking nominations for the 2017 Board of Directors. There will be four seats open for the 2017 term. 

Anyone actively engaged as a principal or employee of a Distributor member company is eligible for nomination. Preference will be given to candidates actively involved at the committee level. Approval from a direct supervisor/company principal is required if candidates are not principals of the company.
Those elected to office will begin their term at the conclusion of the Annual Meeting and are expected to attend the second board meeting held during the Annual Meeting. Each term is three years in length, renewable for one additional term if elected by the Membership.
