2017-18 Board of Directors Information

It is that time of year when we start looking ahead to the nomination and selection process of the 2017-2018 Board of Directors. WALH is a truly unique organization with many talented and committed members – we seek you out and encourage you to take this opportunity to either continue to, or take that next step in supporting summer camp from a different perspective.

Nominations can be Individual Members “IM” as described in Article II, Section 1.1. of the “With A Little Help…”, Inc. Bylaws. They can be self-nominations or nominated by another IM. The Nomination Committee will verify interest with everyone that has been nominated and if they agree, the nominate will be asked to submit a short written biography.
