Nominations are now being accepted from WACO members who wish to be included in the slate of candidates for the WACO Board of Trustees. The election of officers and board members will be held during the 61st Annual WACO Conference at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma October 1st - 3rd.
Any WACO member is eligible to run for a WACO Officer position (President, President-Elect, Vice President, or Secretary-Treasurer) or as a Trustee-at-large to represent their county population category. Though nominations will be accepted for any position up for election, tradition is that officers move up through the chairs so usually only the Secretary-Treasurer is contested among the officers. Travel expenses for WACO officers and Trustees to attend WACO Board of Trustee meetings, other than the Annual WACO Conference, are paid by WACO.
The following positions are open for election this year:
Trustee-at-large Position 2 (county population 400,001 - 1 Million) Two-year term
Trustee-at-large Position 4 (county population from 50,001 - 100,000) Two-year term
Trustee-at-large Position 6 (county population under 20,000) Two-year term
Please consider running for a position on the Board of Trustees! We welcome and need your participation to keep WACO strong!
The nomination process is as follows:
Any WACO member interested in being nominated must submit a letter of intent, a resume, and answer the online questions by September 9 (current officers and trustees included) using the online form.
