DDWC Leadership

The Executive Committee consists of the President, the 1st Vice President, the 2nd Vice President (optional), the Secretary, the Treasurer, the immediate past President, all other past Presidents to the extent that they are willing to serve, and several Members-at-Large. The executive committee may also name ex-officio members to participate on the executive committee; typically ex-officio members are women serving in County level positions.

The executive committee is elected at the annual meeting which is typically held in January.
