WSHA members will be asked to vote on a number of proposed changes to the WSHA bylaws at the Oct. 7 WSHA Business Meeting (part of the Annual Meeting). Members of WSHA’s Governance of the Future Task Force will present a webcast Sept. 28 from 10-11 a.m. to detail the proposed bylaws changes. We encourage WSHA voting members to participate in the webcast. If you would like to participate, please contact Linda Simmons for connection information.
Proposed changes to the bylaws call for a stronger and larger nominating committee, more at-large board seats, changes to the method for geographic representation, updates to the committee structure and increased use of task forces. The Governance of the Future Task Force believes these bylaws changes will strongly position the hospital association for the future. (Taya Briley)
