Legislative Committee

Twenty-four elected director area representatives and WSSDA’s president-elect review and recommend updates to WSSDA’s legislative positions subject to approval by WSSDA members at the annual General Assembly. This group typically meets six times per year either in-person, virtually, or in conjunction with WSSDA events. Additional meetings may be called at the discretion of the committee chair with most of those being held virtually.
