WMSBF Board Applications Open

West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum is now seeking applicants for its 2016 to 2018 board of directors term.  Candidates should be willing and able to lend their vision and leadership to enhancing the direction of the forum over the next two years. You will find a summary of the responsibilities of board membership here and any further detail will be available upon request.

A slate of eight candidates selected by the nominating committee will be presented for a vote of the full membership in May.   We are anticipating five returning board members and three open seats.  Our bylaws require at least two directors rotate off each year.

The 2016-2017 Board of Directors will be presented to the membership at the Annual Meeting on Monday, June 20.  Retiring board members will be honored at the time as well, along with the 2016 Recipient of the WMSBF President’s Award.

Current vice president of the board Alison Sutter, manager of corporate responsibility for SpartanNash, is President-Elect.

Interested parties can apply by completing the Board Application Form here.  Deadline for applications is April 15th.
