Committees

The WFA Board of Directors approves the establishment of committees and their functions. The chair and members are appointed by the president and approved by the board. Each committee has its specific responsibility and objective, and is required to report action and recommendations directly to the board at its next regular meeting. While all committees have specific responsibilities, participation from the membership is required for the success of any program. If you are interested in participating on a WFA committee, contact the WFA office.
