Board of Governors Meetings

Emergency Board Meeting:

An emergency executive session meeting of the Board of Governors will be held on noon–2 p.m. Thursday, June 22, at the WSBA Conference Center to discuss the resignation of WSBA President Robin Haynes and whether a president-elect should be elected for the remainder of this year. 

A public session will follow the emergency executive session should the Board decide to elect a president-elect. A formal swearing in of WSBA President Brad Furlong to fulfill the remainder of the president’s term for this year will follow the meeting (per the WSBA Bylaws, Mr. Furlong has already assumed the office of President effective with the resignation), as well as swearing in of the president-elect for the remainder of this year, if necessary.

Next Board Meeting:

Thursday & Friday, July 27-28, at Alderbrook, Union, Washington

Please note: The date for the July Board meeting has been changed. It was originally July 28-29.

Materials for the July Board meeting will be posted by Friday, July 21, 2017. Any Late Materials will be posted by the day prior to the meeting.
