WACUBO is dedicated to the professional development of its members.  Beyond attending our Annual Conference, workshops and Institutes, interested individuals can become involved within the organization itself.  We know that many of our members have substantial professional experience and diverse skills.  If you're interested in donating your knowledge, time and leadership skills, please take a moment to read how you can become more involved. 

How to become a Committee Member?
The greatest quantity and variety of volunteer opportunities occur in service to one or more WACUBO Committees. 

  • There are 13 Committees of the Association.  These are the committees that provide the best opportunity for beginning and establishing a track record of volunteer service to WACUBO.  
  • There are five Committees of the Board (Audit, Executive, Finance, Nominations, and Site Selection).  You must be a member of the Board of Directors to serve on one of these committees.  Typically, members have substantial prior experience volunteering for WACUBO.

A call for volunteer interest will be sent to the WACUBO email list in fall 2016. In the meantime, if you would like to express interest or request information regarding volunteer service, please contact Robert Moore, First Vice President.

How to become a Committee Chairperson?
As you might expect, Committee Chairs typically have served on a committee for some time and have demonstrated strong support for the committee's work as well as leadership skills and talents.

For more information, please go to the WACUBO Leadership Manual here.

How to become a Board Member?
Currently the Board is comprised of 15 Directors and Officers.  The Nominations Committee recommends candidates who are elected during the Annual Meeting, which takes place at each Annual Conference, to serve for 3-year terms, or they are appointed by the President.  Typically Board members have substantial prior experience volunteering for WACUBO.

How to become a Board Officer?
Four Officers of the Board (President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, and Secretary) are elected by the membership during the Annual Meeting (held during the Annual Conference) based on nominations either from the Nominations Committee or from members.  One officer, the Treasurer, is appointed by action of the Board of Directors.  Usually each of these officers has demonstrated significant leadership for WACUBO in service to various committees over time.
