The term of the current WPHNA Executive Committee (EC), elected in October 2012, is ending this year. With the exception of President and Professional Affairs Secretary, which were elected last year, all EC positions will be open for election.
Executive Committee members serve in an honorary capacity for four years and are eligible to serve for one additional term of four years. A key task of the new EC will be to finalize and operationalize the WPHNA Strategic Plan 2017-2020, currently being drafted.
Each member of the EC will be expected to take active responsibility for at least one key aspect of the work of the Association. All paid up Association members for 2016 are eligible to submit their applications for any of the EC roles and to vote in the election. A description of each role can be found in the Call for Candidates and the Application form.
