2015 Board of Directors

Posted By:  hydnsek @ Feb 21 2015, 12:54 AM
The nomination period has closed, and I'm pleased to announce the slate for the 2015 WSGA Board of Directors. We have another great team this year. Our thanks to these cachers for their enthusiasm, dedication to WSGA and geocaching, and willingness to volunteer their time and energy for the club.

Since the slate has no contested offices, we don't have to hold an election. Per our Bylaws, the slate can be approved by member acclamation. Accordingly, WSGA members have until March 10 to notify Lizzy, our election chair, of any objections to the Board slate. If there's no dissent, the 2015 Board of Directors will be deemed confirmed by acclamation. The term of office is April 1, 2014, through March 31, 2015.


President: Andrew Johnson / AndrewRJ
Vice President: Lisa Wasser / Lizzy*

Greetings, WSGA Members!

A new year means it's time to elect the 2015 WSGA Board of Directors. We are accepting nominations for all positions through Sunday, Feb. 15.

WSGA's Board is comprised of four officers and seven chapter representatives, who serve one-year terms (April 1 - March 31):

Officers: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer

Chapter Representatives: Puget Sound, 48 North, Cache-cadia, Inland Empire, South Central, Southwest, Olympic Peninsula

WSGA is a nonprofit club run by volunteers, and we encourage you to consider joining the Board to support WSGA and geocaching in Washington State. The ideal candidates are members who are active volunteers, support WSGA's mission, and are familiar with club projects and activities.

To nominate yourself or someone else, email Lizzy by Feb. 10. Nominees must be current members of WSGA.

The slate will be announced Feb. 20, and the election will begin March 1, with the new Board taking office April 1. If no Board position is contested, the slate will be approved by acclamation.

If you want to learn more about how the club operates or the duties of Board members, please read our Bylaws or contact us.

Thanks for your support of WSGA, and we look forward to hearing from you!
