Board Election and Nomination Information

Mark Your Calendar! We will be hosting a virtual WLH meeting on Thursday, January 13, 2022 from 6:30-7:00pm. The meeting will be brief and will be focused solely on our 2022 elections. This will be an opportunity for the women on the Ballot to introduce themselves to our WLH Members and then we will host a virtual vote. If you are unable to make the meeting, you will be able to submit your vote by Sunday, January 16, 2021 at midnight. As we head into the New Year and invite you to consider joining our WLH Board, it is with deep appreciation that we acknowledge both Cindy Namahoe (President for the past 8 years) and Jill Kagawa (Secretary for the last 7 years). These loving, dedicated, creative, powerhouses of sisters both have contributed so much to us individually and our amazing WLH community! Their leadership on the Board will be greatly missed! With that, we are looking forward to welcoming new Board members who are excited and ready to step into these roles and wholeheartedly serve our community. With hopes of continuing with succession, Angie Atkins (current Vice President) will be running for President and Jina Rabago (current Corresponding Secretary) will be running for Vice President - please note, these positions are open for others to run for as well. Nominations If you are interested in running for any of these 4 positions - please respond to this email or get in touch with one of the Board Members (contact information provided below) by Sunday, December 19, 2021 in order to be included on the Ballot. We also welcome your nominations for other WLH members who you believe would be a great fit for these Board positions and have taken the time to talk with her about serving on the Board. We will follow-up with her and see if she's interested in being included on the Ballot. Voting & Membership Are you a current WLH Member?
