Board Nominations

The Board of Directors is an opportunity to grow your leadership skills.

Our Commitment

All positions request a 2-year commitment.  As positions may come open during the year, an interim-Director may be selected.  Interim Directors may choose to stay in the position and be confirmed by the board of directors and GWIN members at the following Annual General Meeting. 

If you are interested in a Board position, fill out the nomination form and a Director will reach out to you to discuss any opportunities.  Should you have question about a specific position please reach out to the secretary, or the specific director.
