Call for Washington Wellesley Club Board Officer Nominations


The Washington Wellesley Club announces its 2018 Call for Nominations for candidates to join its board for the 2018-2020 term. 


The WWC Board is composed of officers who are responsible for building the club’s fiscal health, membership, community involvement, and commitment to Wellesley College and the Washington, DC alumnae network.  According to the WWC’s bylaws, the club holds elections at its Annual Meeting. The Nominating Committee will announce a slate of candidates one month prior to the Annual Meeting. The 2018 Annual Meeting will take place in early June.   The WWC elects half of its officers in odd years and half in even years. Each office has a two-year term. This maintains board continuity and develops a sustainable knowledge and leadership base. 

The WWC seeks nominees for the following positions to serve from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2020: President, Secretary, Vice President of Programs, and Vice President for Media. 

The President shall be the chief executive officer of the Club and shall preside at all regular Club meetings including the annual meeting. She shall be an ex officio member of all Club committees except the Nominating Committee. The President shall have the authority to establish ad hoc committees and to appoint their chairs.  

The Secretary shall issue notices for all regular, annual and special meetings of the Club. The Secretary shall keep the minutes of all such meetings, conduct the Club correspondence, and preserve the Club records. The Secretary will also keep record of attendance at Board meetings and notify the President of attendance quarterly.  

The Vice President for Programs shall plan, publicize, and execute programs of general interest to the Club, and may appoint and coordinate the work of one or more committees to carry out programs.  

The Vice President for Media shall be responsible for collecting, writing, editing and disseminating to Club members news of the Club and College activities and other information deemed of interest and relevant to the Club membership.  

Each of these positions may be occupied by no more than two individuals. Board members commit to attending monthly board meetings. You may nominate yourself or another person to run for an open board position.  Nominations are due March 20, 2018.
