We will be hosting a virtual WLH meeting on Thursday, January 7, 2021 from 6:30-7:00pm. The meeting will be brief and will be focused solely on our 2021 elections. We have 2 Board positions to fill: Treasurer and Corresponding Secretary (descriptions included below). We will be hosting the meeting to provide an opportunity for the women on the Ballot to introduce themselves to our WLH Members and then we will host a virtual vote. If you are unable to make the meeting, you will be able to submit your vote by January 9, 2020 at midnight.


If you are interested in running for the Treasurer or Corresponding Secretary positions - please respond to this email or get in touch with one of the Board Members (contact information provided below) by December 20, 2020 in order to be included on the Ballot. We also welcome your nominations for other WLH members who you believe would be a great fit for either of these Board positions and have taken time to talk with her about serving on the Board. We will follow-up with her and see if she's interested in being included on the Ballot.
