All BOT members and committee chairs will be getting an email with the ZOOM link and instructions on how to connect. The BOT email will have the agenda attached, any correspondence received will be sent as an attachment on that email. All reports be submitted to President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Parliamentarian. (if there has been no activity on your committee, your report can say “No Activity”) Speaker of the House, Shelley Gingrich, CMA (AAMA) will be using the end of the BOT meeting to hold Orientation of HOD. Shelley will be sending an email to all Delegates and Alternate Delegates the ZOOM link for Sunday’s HOD. Shelley will be sending as an attachment a updated Nominating Report along with any other correspondence.This year has expanded our knowledge on how to adapt. Having a House of Delegates is necessary: It is the WSSMA House of Delegates that elects our State Officers, Trustees and other elected positions. With guidance from AAMA Chief Executive Officer and Legal Counsel, Don Balasa and our Past WSSMA Presidents. The consensus was to ask current officers if they would be willing to serve for another year. Some members are not able to continue in their current position, so the decision was to submit a Nominating Report with some officers/positions continuing for another year and new members running for some positions.
