TO ALL WPA AFFILIATED CLUBS

WPA recently held its Elective AGM and elected a new Board and Commission members. Pursuant to the WPA Constitution ver.10 the WPA Board hereby invites members to submit an expression of interest to serve on Standing Committees that are necessary to meet the Aims and Objectives of WPA.

Standing Committees play a vitally important role and will meet according to their task, and as specified in their terms of reference.

Standing Committees are established on a permanent basis. These committees analyse issues within their areas of jurisdiction and make recommendations to the board. A standing committee also monitors and evaluates the performance of the whole organisation in relation to its responsibility.

Appointment to the Standing Committees is voluntary; it carries no remuneration and is constituted at the sole discretion of the WPA Board. The term is for one year renewable at the discretion of the WPA Board.
