WFSA Officer nominations 2020-2024

The call for nominations for WFSA Officer positions is now open. This process will be decided by delegates at the General Assembly and if you wish to be elected you will need to be present at the General Assembly.

To facilitate the process, WFSA will need your completed online application, together with a supporting letter from your nominating Society and a 1 page up to date CV.  So, if you wish to stand for re-election then please complete the online process at https://wfsagrants.awardsplatform.com, which will also ask for your consent for your name and a brief biography to be placed on the website.

The WFSA Officers are: two (2) Presidents to serve in sequence, a Treasurer, a Secretary, a Director of Partnerships and a Director of Programmes will all be elected by the General Assembly. If you wish to stand for one of these positions then please complete the relevant online application and again your name will be placed on the WFSA website.

Only those seeking the role of President will be expected to make a short oral presentation, of no more than 5 minutes duration, at the General Assembly.

If you have served 2 terms on Council and are not seeking further positions in the organisation then you will be eligible to join our Advisory Group which is comprised of those individuals who have served on WFSA committees and who are willing to continue to contribute to the aims and aspirations of the organisation. We will ask all those eligible for confirmation of their willingness to serve on the Advisory Group when we meet in Prague.

Officer Description

 

ImpoDear Council Member,

 

We are now approaching the WCA in Prague at a rapid rate and there are several matters relating to the Council that need to be resolved.

 

Firstly, we need to know who is seeking re-election to the Council for a second term of office until 2024. If you were first elected to Council in 2016 then this applies to you and I would be grateful if you would confirm your willingness to stand for re-election. This process will be decided by delegates at the General Assembly and if you wish to be elected you will need to be present at the General Assembly.

 

To facilitate the process, we will need your completed online application, together with a supporting letter from your nominating Society and a 1 page up to date CV. So, if you wish to stand for re-election then please complete the online process at https://wfsagrants.awardsplatform.com, which will also ask for your consent for your name and brief biography to be placed on the website. You can access the nominations online system through the WFSA website: https://www.wfsahq.org/wfsa-council-nominations-2020

 

 

 

The other matter that requires attention is the election of Officers. Two (2) Presidents to serve in sequence, a Treasurer, a Secretary, a Director of Partnerships and a Director of Programmes will all be elected by the General Assembly. If you wish to stand for one of these positions then please complete the relevant online application and again your name will be placed on the WFSA website.
