Hello from your Western Board of Directors!

At PSIA-AASI’s Western Region, we are entering a very exciting time with our new CEO, Marisa Cooper and her band of merry helpers developing some great and fun ideas to support our members and their growth.  Expect to see some cool things in the coming months!  This work is because of the strategic objectives your Board of Directors has set in support of our membership.

It’s Election Season!

It is that time of year again when your Board of Directors kicks off the election season for the FY24 Season. As a result, we are starting the search for candidates to run for election to our next Western Board of Directors.

We are looking for candidates who have the following qualities:

  • Have ideas on how PSIA-AASI can better serve its members.
  • Have the skills and experience to implement those ideas.
  • Preferable have experience serving as a leader in organizations, particularly in the Non-Profit or Government Space
  • Either are familiar with Policy Governance® or are willing to learn and abide by the Board’s Policy Governance policies.

If this sounds interesting to you, and you have talent to offer in this space, please consider running for the Board!  Please note that you must be a Level 1 certified snowsports instructor and be an Active or Alumni Member in good standing to serve as a Director.

Time Commitment Required:

The Board meets in-person twice a year and conducts monthly Board Calls on the third Tuesday of each month. Our annual Spring Board meeting is adjacent to the Spring Convention, which will be held at Palisades at Tahoe this April. Our two-day Summer Board meeting is typically in Truckee generally in late summer / early fall.

The time commitment is 4-6 hours per month (unless you are lucky enough to be in a Officer position, in which case that time commitment goes up a bit).  There is also an expectation that the successful candidates will take up to 8 hours of training in advance of starting their service as a Director to ensure a cohesive next term for our Board of Directors.
