The association has commenced the process of director nominations for up to four nominated directors, one elected director, and the office of the vice president.

The first stage of this process will be appointing up to four nominated directors, shortly thereafter the process for elected directors will commence. Both these processes will be completed in time for the WMAA AGM In April 2018. As such WMAA is calling for the following nominations:

1. Three skilled positions

Three of these vacancies are dedicated to members with necessary skills to satisfy the WMAA mission and more specifically the objects of the WMAA Strategic Plan. Members with strong social enterprise, community engagement, recycling, landfill, organics, and or circular economy professional experience, and who meet the other eligibility criteria, are encouraged to nominate.

2. Government position

The board has determined that at least one of these vacancies should be dedicated to a member with government experience to assist in satisfying specific objects of the WMAA Strategic Plan. Members with strong senior government professional experience, and who meet the other eligibility criteria, are encouraged to nominate.

Successful candidates for each of the positions will take office for a term of two years, effective from the date of the WMAA AGM 2018. Directors are responsible for the governance of WMAA over the course of the two years.

Nominees must be willing to become financial members of WMAA and retain financial membership throughout their term on the Board.
