2018 BARR Awards will also be handed out at this meeting.
The Board of Directors has endorsed a slate of candidates for the open board positions:
West Region Representative: Martha Lane Walsh
Northwest Region Representative (and MTB Director): Glen Conley
Regarding the Northwest Region position. We pursued a number of folks that live further north and we had no takers. Instead of leaving the position vacant we decided to fill it with Glen who will represent the “dirt” community as well. A position we value.
The bylaws say reasonable effort be made for a geographic representation and after 2+ weeks of attempts the reasonable standard was met.
Directors on the Board are elected for three-year terms by a vote of the membership (one vote per USAC club in Washington, North Idaho, and Oregon who are present at the meeting), conducted at the annual meeting.
The WSBA bylaws allow additional nominations from any two directors or ten individual members, "by written petition addressed to the Secretary of the corporation at least 10 days prior to the date of the annual meeting." If you have anyone else you would like to consider for a director position, please e-mail the secretary at wsbaresults at yahoo.com.
The Board of Directors elects officers of the WSBA Board. If you are interested in being, or know of someone who is interested in being, an officer, feel free to contact the WSBA secretary. Officer positions are President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer and may be held by individuals who are not members of the Board of Directors.
