The WCU Alumni Association board of directors launched a new election process for membership to the board in the fall of 2007. An election will now be held at the end of every year. The WCU Alumni Association's more than 60,000 members have been divided into five geographical districts. All WCU alumni are eligible and encouraged to vote in each district race, including races representing areas other than those in which the alumnus lives.
Any member or group of alumni may nominate candidates of their choice provided the candidate meets requirements for membership of the association.
For information on candidate requirements, contact Marty Ramsey.
