Joining the Board: Designed to provide leadership and direction for the Forum, the Women’s Forum Board consists of a total of 22 individuals: 20 elected Board members, the past chair and the current chair.

Most Board positions are for a term of two (2) years. Board members are required to attend monthly board meetings, UKWF programs and events, and the annual conference. Each Board member also serves on a committee and attends additional committee meetings. Work out of meetings may include planning for programs and events or serving on an Ad Hoc committee.

UKWF Board elections take place through a self-nomination process. Individuals interested in running for the Board are encouraged to self-nominate during the month of April. The nomination period typically opens in April and runs for about 3 weeks. Following nominations, elections will open to any UK employee to vote for the incoming board.
