2019 WHSLA Election

Dear WHSLA Members,

In the absence of an Elections Committee, one of my responsibilities as WHSLA President is to run an election.  This simple task brings new blood to our WHSLA Leadership, and keeps the organization  running well into the future. 

For 2019, we are voting on
1 President Elect
and 2 WHSLA Board Members. 

The bylaws say we are allowed to go ahead with the election even if we have only one candidate for each office.    Thank you to our candidates for their willingness to serve.  Let’s make it official, WHSLA!
