Updated April 1, 2021

Nominations for the WJTA Board of Directors are open. The duties of the directors are truly challenging and rewarding. WJTA members are encouraged to get involved in the election process, nominate fellow members for a seat on the board and VOTE!

Nominations are sought for six (6) board members, each to serve a four-year term of office beginning Monday, October 25, 2021.

The terms of office of Bill Gaff, Vacuum Truck Rentals LLC, Bill McClister, consultant, Gary Noto, HydroChemPSC, Jimmy Peck, MPW Industrial Services, George Savanick, Ph.D., consultant, and Bill Krupowicz, Jetstream of Houston LLP will expire on October 25, 2021. In addition, seventh and eighth positions formerly held by Alan Smith, BASF, and Pat DeBusk, USA DeBusk, are open for nomination.

The WJTA bylaws provide that no more than one of the elected board members may be from the same company or organization.

(Kerry Siggins); and NLB Corp. (Drew Waltenbaugh).

According to the WJTA bylaws, any WJTA member in good standing (2021 membership dues paid) may submit a nomination(s).
