NWAEP NEEDS YOU!
Would you like to become more involved in Northwest Association of Environmental Professionals? Meet new people in your field and encourage others to do the same?
Nominations are now being accepted for candidates to serve on the NWAEP Board of Directors! Board members serve two-year terms. This year, three of the seven board positions are open for a full two-year term. Two additional positions are open for a one-year term, to fill out the remaining year of resigning board members’ terms.
Any NWAEP member in good standing may put themselves forward for election. Being a board member takes time, energy, and dedication, but it brings great rewards and leadership opportunities. The health of our organization relies on this important work. We hope you will consider making a commitment to NWAEP by applying to serve on its board.
As a board member you would:
Participate in quarterly board meetings and regular email discussions
Attend NWAEP-sponsored educational and social events
Raise awareness of volunteerism within NWAEP
Promote professional excellence in the environmental field
Take primary responsibility for a part of our ongoing and planned programs
If you are interested in becoming a NWAEP Board member, please submit a short candidate bio (i.e. 2-3 paragraphs) describing your field of work, years of experience, past and present involvement in NWAEP/NAEP, and your vision for the chapter during your term in office to the following email address: TheNWAEP@gmail.com. Deadline for submitting your candidate bio is 6:00 p.m., Monday May 3, 2021. All candidates must be current NWAEP members.
Board members will be selected by the general NWAEP membership via an online vote, which will occur later in May. Winners will be notified by email. Results will be posted on the NWAEP website.
