        About WCASA

        WCASA Board of Directors

        The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault is a non-profit agency guided by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from the six service regions across the state.  It consists of a minimum number of 9 seats and a maximum number of 19 seats. 

        Currently the WCASA Bylaws require that a simple majority of seats shall be filled by representatives of Sexual Assault Service Providers (SASPs).  In 2010 the Board changed the Governing Policies to include a provision that half of the Board be from underserved populations.  Two Survivor seats have also been added in the last couple of years.  (See below for more information about the Survivor seats.)

        The WCASA Board of Directors is committed to developing a Board that is representative of its membership and the diversity of communities in Wisconsin. Board membership is open to any person regardless of race, color, religion or creed, age, sex, national origin, handicap or disability, ancestry, sexual orientation, or marital status.

         

        Board Meetings

        The WCASA Board of Directors meet bi-monthly - January, March, May, July, September - with the last Board Meeting to be held in November along with the Annual Meeting. 

        WCASA Members are welcome to attend Board Meetings. Please contact the WCASA Office if you are interested in attending a meeting. Agendas will be made available upon request. 

         

        Board Elections

        The Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault is a non-profit agency guided by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from the six service regions across the state.  It consists of a minimum number of 9 seats and a maximum number of 19 seats.  

        Currently the WCASA Bylaws require that a simple majority of seats shall be filled by representatives of Sexual Assault Service Providers (SASPs).  In 2010 the Board changed the Governing Policies to include a provision that half of the Board be from systematically oppressed populations.  Two Board seats are also reserved as survivor seats, to be filled by primary survivors of sexual assault.  These seats are not elected positions and will be appointed by the Board of Directors for a term of two years. 

        The WCASA Board of Directors is committed to developing a Board that is representative of its membership and the diversity of communities in Wisconsin. Board membership is open to any person regardless of race, color, religion or creed, age, sex, national origin, handicap or disability, ancestry, sexual orientation, or marital status.

        WCASA recruits for Board Members and accepts applications in the fall of the year. Once the slate of nominations has been completed, elections are held with the WCASA Membership voting during September and October. The final decisions are announced at the November Annual Meeting.

        If there are openings throughout the year, Board Members may be appointed.  If you are interested in becoming a Board Member or have questions, please contact the Board President.
