Join Our Board
Be a Part of the wan executive board
Calling all water and ocean-minded professionals in the DC-metro area! The Women's Aquatic Network has several open positions on the Executive Board, and we are looking to fill them with enthusiastic and motivated individuals with an interest in promoting the health and protection of our marine and aquatic resources.
While we understand that life happens and we fill in for each other at times, the general expectations of Executive Board members include:
- Regular attendance at WAN events
- Monthly in-person board meetings
- 2-4 hours/month on follow-up actions and committee activities
- Annual Executive Board day-long retreat (in DC)
- Bi-Annual Executive Board-Advisory Board meetings (in DC)
- Help with fundraising leading up to and during the Holiday Party (sponsorships, soliciting auction items, selling raffle tickets, etc.)
- Traditional term length of 2-4 years
If interested, please submit the application below by 10 p.m. on October 2nd. We will notify you of your selection to the WAN Executive Board by mid-October. If you want to know more about what it is like to work behind the scenes with WAN, current board members will be available at our September 29th WAN and Marine Transportation System BBQ to answer all of your questions!
