Board of Trustees

The WSMA board of trustees meets quarterly and is responsible for carrying out the mandates and policies of the House of Delegates.

The board has all the powers of the House except amending the bylaws or establishing dues or assessments.

From the board, the president, president-elect, vice president, immediate past president, and secretary-treasurer form the executive committee. The committee meets monthly and acts for the board in implementing WSMA programs and establishing interim policy.

Nominations for WSMA Leadership: Deadline April 29

A demographically representative leadership is crucial to WSMA's success

The WSMA is accepting nominations for a variety of positions on the board of trustees. Don’t miss this opportunity to get involved and help ensure Washington continues to be the best place to practice medicine and receive care.

If you or someone you know is interested in serving, please submit a nomination form, conflict of interest disclosure statement, and candidate information sheet along with a curriculum vitae to Shannon Bozarth at no later than Friday, April 29.

The WSMA nominating committee will meet in late May to prepare a slate of nominees for presentation to the House of Delegates at the WSMA Annual Meeting, Oct. 1-2 at the Historic Davenport Hotel in Spokane. Additional nominations may be made from the floor of the House during the meeting.
