WSBA Referendum Proposes Big Changes; Members Called on to Vote
A member referendum has been filed with WSBA's executive director calling for a vote of the WSBA membership. It requests that the Board of Governors' decision to keep 2013 license fees the same for the fourth consecutive year be repealed, and that 2013 license fees be dropped from $450 to $325.
On March 7, electronic ballots will go out to the active membership, with paper copies sent to those without valid email addresses on file. Members will have until April 6 to vote. Passing or defeating this referendum requires a majority vote of those active members voting.
Below are some facts about WSBA's member referendum process, your WSBA license fee and the potential impact of the proposed referendum.
