Serve on the Board of Directors

WCA’s current Board of Directors looks to you, its membership, to find the best candidates to serve on the board. We need your leadership, involvement and support to continue offering top tier professional development events and growing this beloved organization. Serving on the board helps our communicators grow as leaders, and the returns on service are often greater than the service itself.

Board terms begin on June 1 each year and end on May 31 the following year.
