Nominations are Open for WLIA’S 2017 Elections!

The Wisconsin Land Information Association Nominations Committee is looking for recommendations to serve as President-Elect and Directors for the 2017 WLIA Board of Directors. The committee strives to build a slate of candidates that will represent the entire spectrum of the WLIA membership.

We are seeking your suggestions, which will be forwarded to the Nominations Committee. You can recommend yourself or someone you believe would serve WLIA well. The only requirement for board member nomination is that the person be a member of WLIA. If you are recommending someone for the President-Elect position, that person must have served on the Board of Directors previously for at least two years.

If you can, please provide a brief description of why you think this person will make a good board member as well as what part of the state they are from and what occupation they represent (full biographies will be solicited for the actual ballot from our final candidates). We are looking for a slate of approximately 10 to 12 potential board members and 2 or more President-Elect candidates.

The President-Elect position is a four year commitment: one year as President-Elect of the Association, one year as President of the Association, one year as the Past President position on the board of directors and one year as the Scholarship Foundation President.

The Board positions are a two year term from the date of the annual conference.

Benefits to Board Members are:

  • Learning about land information issues
  • Helping guide the organization
  • Networking with peers
  • Giving back to WLIA and its members
  • Enhancing your resume
  • Having fun in the midst of achieving great success for our profession!

Please send your nominations via the website HERE by December 9, 2016. Please include the name and organization of the nominee.

The slate of candidates will be sent to members in early January 2017. Ballots, including biographical summaries of all candidates, will be online shortly after that date. Voting results will be announced at the Annual Meeting in Wisconsin Dells, February 22-24, 2017.

If you have any questions about the process, qualifications or duties, contact Adam Derringer, WLIA Past-President and Nominations Chair at 608-443-1231 or Ann Barrett, WLIA Executive Services Manager at 800-344-0421.
