Board of Directors
According to our ByLaws, the WSIADA Board of Directors is the governing body of the Association. Traditionally, the board has been composed of dealer members who volunteer as chapter presidents, representing the state's six regions. This last year, Membership approved a provision that allows for “at large” board members, which gives us the added flexibility of multiple board members per Chapter.
The current chapters are North Sound, South Sound, Vancouver, Yakima, Tri-Cities, and Spokane.
After one year as a chapter president (or “at large” member), dealers can run for vice president, secretary, or treasurer. After two years of board service, a dealer can run for state president. While board participation does not take much time, there is a commitment to a monthly meeting (typically in Auburn) and one annual meeting. Electronic participation is available, but we prefer that board members plan to participate in person at least quarterly. The quality of the Association's work is further enhanced as board members participate on working committees and provide necessary guidance to association staff.
Past state presidents become honorary members. As an honorary member, membership dues are waived.
Limited Edition Associate Members join with the State Board of Directors at a quarterly meeting that helps to set the tone with new programs and events that support the mission of the association. To provide input to this board, let us know either through your chapter president or by corresponding directly with the association executive director.
