The affairs of WADA are managed by the Board of Directors. The WADA board is comprised of 2 Directors (voting members) and 1 Alternate from each Region (DC, MD, VA east and VA west). Each member must reside or play on a team in the region he/she represents when elected to office.
The regions in Virginia are divided by a line running south along Fairfax County Parkway, from State Route 7 to State Route 123, then south along State Route 123 to its intersection with Interstate Highway I-95.
Regional Directors terms are for a period of 2 years ending in Sept (so the terms are staggered). Elections are generally held at the Fall Captain's meeting but board members may be appointed by the Chair anytime during the year. Alternates are elected for a period of 1 year from date of election or appointment.
Chairman of the Board is elected to a two-year term. Every second year, at it's regular meeting in August, the Board elects from among it's voting members, the Chairman of the Board.
NOTE: Team shooter fees are paid for Directors but not for Alternates.
