WUDi 2017 Elections

Hello WUDI!

It's time for Election Season, and the WUDi Board has 2 positions that need to be filled! We are looking for candidates for Executive Director and At-Large member.  Each position holds a 2 year term.

Why would I want to take on the work of being on the WUDi Board, you ask?


Here are a few things to consider:

1. Board Members earn Earlybird status! Tired of frantically registering for leagues at 8 p.m. sharp and then worrying that you still might not get in because it fills up so quickly?? If you're a Board Member, you get to register early stress-free!

2. Be honest - you've probably gotten a lot out of WUDi (and the Ultimate community) over the course of your life. WUDi has provided you with high-level leagues and the great social connections that go with playing in them. Isn't it time to give back to the organization with the gift of your time?

3. Have you ever felt like you had great ideas that would make WUDi even better? Being on the Board is a great way to get your opinions heard!

4. It really doesn't take up that much time! The Board only meets in person a few times each year, and a large chunk of Board business is done via email.
