Who wouldn’t? It’s election time again, and the National Women’s Health Network is inviting nominations for our board of directors. All NWHN members will have a chance to vote for the new board during the Spring 2014 elections. We are seeking candidates who understand and agree with the NWHN’s mission and goals and who are committed to the activist nature of the organization. We seek diversity in race, class, age, sexual identity and geographic location, and candidates who have varied skills and experiences in women’s health. All applicants must be NWHN members.

The NWHN has a working board. Board members are expected to attend three weekend board meetings each year and to participate in fundraising and on a board committee. Meetings take place in various locations, including Washington, D.C. and California. For more information on board responsibilities, to get a nomination form, or to see copies of candidate election statements from previous elections, please contact our office by phone at 202.682.2640 or visit the NWHN’s website at
