VP Removal

During last nights board meeting (meeting of September 21, 2022) a motion of “no-confidence” with our current vice president occurred. The vote that followed the motion resulted in a vote of over 2/3 of the board to remove our current sitting vice president.

We are now currently looking for a interim vice president to finish out the rest of the current term which would end 3/31/23. If you are interested in the position, please contact us via our contact page on our website with the subject of “VP Position”. We are looking to fill the position by our next board meeting on 11/16/22. Interested candidates should contact us no later than 11/1/22. Candidates interested in running for the VP position would have to be vetted and would be required to attend our 11/16/22 meeting for questions from our board members and a vote into the VP position. All Candidates for the VP position are required to be a current WSGA member and must reside within the borders of Washington State.
