2019 FWA Annual Meeting and New Member Welcome


Karen Elinski
FWA President

Simone Vinocour
FWA President

FWA Members will salute the leadership and achievements of President Karen Elinski for her incredible commitment and dedication to the FWA during her year term at the FWA Annual Meeting of Members on Thursday, June 27, 2019 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM at New York Life. Newly elected directors and committee members will be announced and the new FWA President will outline her vision for her upcoming term.


The Annual Meeting is the foremost opportunity for FWA members to greet new members and reconnect with FWA colleagues in an informal, social setting. The Annual Meeting inspires members to consider how they personally will contribute to the greater success of the FWA mission and their own professional development in the next year.

Members' votes will be reported for the following elected positions:


Directors presented by the Nominating Committee

Immediate Past President to serve on the Board

Directors at Large to serve on the Board

Standing Committee Chairs to serve on the Board

Two members of the Nominating Committee for the years 2019-20 and 2020-21

FWA Eligible Members: Please watch your inbox for FWA Election nominee profiles and ballots and VOTE promptly. Also check your spam box that might filter the election notice.

Every eligible member's vote is important! It is critical to deciding the senior leadership for the FWA, and counts toward the required quorum. The Nominating Committee urges you to open the email and VOTE even if you do not select any of the candidates and even if you cannot attend the Annual Meeting of Members in person. Look for the email with the subject line "FWA 2019-2020 Election-VOTE NOW."

Please vote in the FWA Election and attend the Annual Meeting.
