We are pleased to present the March, 2013 WIOMSA Newsbrief. 2013 is an election year for the new Board of Trustees. We are pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for elections of the WIOMSA Board of Trustees. As was the case in the last election, only members in good standing, that is paid members and students (these are exempted from paying membership fees) will be eligible to nominate, be nominated and to vote. Paid members and students may make up to four nominations one for each category (Island states, Mainland countries, Host country and membership from outside the region).
