2023 WWA Support Member Application
Background on the WWA Board:

The governing body of WWA consists of an eleven member Board of Directors. The board includes one representative from each of the five regions across Wisconsin and six At-Large members (from any region). The Board of Directors elects the Vice-Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer from the eleven board members at the annual fall meeting. The Vice-Chairperson from the previous year assumes the role of Chair for the next year.

All board members assume office at the conclusion of the fall board meeting. They hold office until the fall board meeting of the following year. There is typically one meeting prior to the fall board meeting, for onboarding of new board members, to introduce them to the bylaws, and stragetic plan, and committees.  Due to transition of roles, both new board members as well as the previous year's board members attend the fall meeting.
