The Williams Syndrome Association is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. The Board provides organizational oversight and works closely with staff and volunteers to establish the vision and carry out the mission of the WSA.
There are 11 - 15 trustees on the Board in any given year. Trustees are elected by the membership for three-year terms and may seek re-election to one additional term. Nominations for open seats are accepted beginning each July, with elections taking place in late fall. Those interested in holding a seat on the Board are often nominated by members of the nominating committee, but they may also self-nominate. Notices regarding upcoming nomination procedures and timelines are announced via the eNewsletter. Meeting dates, minutes, and additional information contained in the WSA by-laws are available for review at any time.
