We will vote on nominees to fill vacancies at the October 1 meeting.  Some of the incumbents are eligible for another term, and some of those will run again.  Some slots are vacant because the incumbents have served the maximum time allowed in our by-laws, do not wish to run again, or have left the area.  The Board is planning to limit each village to one person on the Board at a time.

Board terms are two years; some of the original Board Members served an initial first term of one year, to stagger the board, some people have been appointed mid term and are now being elected by the WAVE members.

Any Director may serve a maximum of 3 consecutive terms or 6 straight years.

The Board considers operational issues, organizational policies, financial matters, and future programs.  Board members may prepare responses to correspondence and inquiries from individuals, other villages and organizations and share them with other Board members before speaking for the organization.  WAVE is completing its first decade.  In the upcoming terms, the Board plans to address succession and sustainability, current and future needs of WAVE Villages and of the Village Movement.

We welcome the input of our member villages and encourage you to become involved as a Board member or to serve on a committee.  Please send Board member nominations to our Secretary, Eddie Rivas (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by September 15, 2018.  Nominations will be accepted from the floor at the October 1 meeting.  We will post the list of nominees on the website a week before our October 1 meeting, and will present the list at the meeting.
