    Two terms are expiring, and a few others are vacant, so if you want to run for the WWALS board, this is a good time.

    A nomination form for board and committees, along with bios of current board members, is here: https://www.wwals.net/about/board/.

  5. Election of Board Positions
  6. All board members sign Bylaws, Conflict of Interest Policy, and Whistleblower Policy

    The board may enact other policies. For example, WWALS is a distributed organization which cannot conduct business solely through in-person meetings, so participation in the online board email list is mandatory for board members.
