The Barbecue

Each summer, RPCV/W holds its Annual Meeting as stipulated in its bylaws. All RPCV/W Members and their guests are welcome at this catered event. This year, our Summer Barbecue will be held at the National Zoo on June 22 from 12 - 3pm. Tickets are $30 for members, $40 for non-members, and $20 for kids ages 12 - 4. Kids 3 and under eat free.

The Elections

On June 17, we will enable online voting for the next year's Board of Directors. Voters may withhold their votes to meet with the candidates, then vote at the Barbecue itself. The election results are announced at the event.

Any active member may self-nominate and run for any position. Candidates may run for multiple positions and campaign at events or in the Facebook Group.
The Positions

There are 11 voting positions on the board. They meet monthly, hold several planning retreats, and maintain constant email communication. They are responsible for maintaining the organization, engaging its members, and setting the agenda for a given year.
