WHF Board Nominations

WHF is now accepting nominations for board membership for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 fiscal years. Both self-nominations and nominations by another WHF member are acceptable.  Please send all board nominations, including resume of nominee, either directly to me (jennifer.trepinski@csh.org) or a current board member for consideration.  Elections will take place at our upcoming Annual Members’ Dinner on May 22nd.
