  |   WSVMA News

The election for the WSVMA Board of Directors will be held at the Annual Membership Meeting on September 28, 2019. The meeting will be in conjunction with the Pacific Northwest Veterinary Conference being held at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center. Ballots will be sent out in August in accordance with WSVMA Bylaws, and will include a proxy form to sign and return to the WSVMA for members who are not able to attend the Conference.

Serving on the current Board of Directors include Dr. Jean Gulbransen, president, Dr. Gary Marshall, vice president, and Dr. Diane Pinkers, secretary. Drs. Rick DeBowes, Paul DeMaris, and Jennifer Koenig serve as directors.

Board members whose terms are expiring this year include Drs. Paul DeMaris and Diane Pinkers. They have both completed two terms and are ineligible to serve another term.

There are four candidates running for two open positions, both with three-year terms beginning Fall 2019.

  • Dr. Jennifer Bennett
  • Dr. Corrie Hines
  • Dr. Lindsey Hornickel
  • Dr. Danielle Tulloss

When members vote at the Annual Membership meeting in Tacoma or when they return their proxies, there will also be an opportunity for a write-in vote.

Watch your inboxes in mid-August for the meeting notice and proxy. According to WSVMA Bylaws, ten percent of the membership must vote, either in person or by return of their proxy.
