The WIN Board:
Positions, Application Process and Timeline
WIN’s board is responsible for the overall strategic direction of WIN, including:
Board members serve 2 year terms, which are structured so that approximately 1/3 of the Board turns over every year. The current Board has 9 members, a number that is set by the Board. In addition, the Board may appoint members as needed.
Three (3) Board Member positions are coming available in November 2021, each for a 2-year term.
