Open/Vacant Positions on WACD Board of Directors – Area Directors Needed in SE and SW

There are currently two vacant positions on the WACD Board of Directors – both being Area Director positions. As you may know, we have a total of 6 areas (SE, NE, SC, NC, NW, SW) each with two directors per area.

One of the SE Area Director positions has been vacant for at least the past 6 months. The process to fill that position is set in the SE Area bylaws which provide that the WACD shall fill the position upon a recommendation by the Area Executive Committee (comprised now of Columbia CD’s Chair, Vice Chair, and Sec-Treasurer, and Palouse CD’s Chair). If you are interested in being considered for the vacant SE Area Director position, please send an email indicating your interest in being nominated to bschroeter@wadistricts.org and I will provide that to the Area Executive Committee. There is no specified time frame for action by the Area in their bylaws but a suggestion of action within 30-45 days will be made after receiving an application from an eligible supervisor.

The second of the vacant Area Director positions is that of a SW Area Director, vacant due to the election of Doug Rushton as NACD State Director. The process to fill that position is set in the SW Area bylaws which provide that the WACD shall fill the position upon a recommendation by the Area Executive Committee (comprised now of Pacific CD’s Chair, Vice Chair, and Sec-Treasurer, and Thurston CD’s Chair). If you are interested in being considered for the vacant SW Area Director position, please send an email indicating your interest in being nominated to bschroeter@wadistricts.org and I will provide that to the Area Executive Committee.  There is no specified time frame for action by the Area in their bylaws but a suggestion of action within 30-45 days will be made after receiving an application from an eligible supervisor.

The duties of an Area Director can be reviewed in our Articles & Bylaws attachment to this email, and particular attention should be paid to pages 8-9.
