The Board Elections for the next two-year term of the WFSJ Board are a little more than a month away. As the current Board of Directors looks for ways to secure the long-term success of the Federation, we feel we need to make some changes to our governance structure.
The first important change is the size of the WFSJ Board. Currently, the Board is made of seven (7) Directors. We would like to expand the size of the Board to include nine (9) Directors. We feel it will bring several benefits. This amendment will require a majority vote of the WFSJ Members present at a Special Meeting.
The second important change is the procedure for the selection of a President of the Board.
Please read the letter here from the WFSJ’s Board of Directors for more details and an explanation on the proposed changes.
SPECIAL VIRTUAL MEETING
Both these items will be discussed at a virtual meeting on Thursday, June 1, 9 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST).
It will be an opportunity to vote on the expansion of the number of Directors and discuss the process for selecting the President. We urge all WFSJ member associations to take part in this meeting.
