The 555 votes from 114 members that were cast in the 2012 WGA Board of Directors election, which ended on Monday (February 13), have been counted and certified. The following individuals have been elected to the Board:

2 YEAR TERMS (Ends February 2014)
Peter Quella (labrat_wr)
James Bliefnick (JimandLinda)
Brian Kling (Team Black-Cat)
Rob England (Averith)
Lisa Daniels (Curly Girls)

1 YEAR TERM (Ends February 2013)
Brian McKay (uws22)

Congratulations!

Election Details

These individuals will join or re-join current Board members Ralph Edwards, Renee Vanselow-Tapp, and Barry Butrymowicz to form the 2012 WGA Board.

Note that per our bylaws, WGA officers (President, Vice-President, etc.) are not directly elected and instead are Board members that are selected and confirmed by the Board itself. Selection of officers should occur during the BOD meeting at the end of February.

The WGA would like to thank all the candidates who decided to run for the Board this year. All of the candidates were well qualified to serve on the Board and all would have done a great job and been an asset to the organization if elected. They all invested significant time and effort into running by explaining their viewpoints, describing their background, and answering questions in the Candidates Corner forum so that members could make an informed decision when it came time to vote.

Also, thanks to all the WGA members who spent time learning about the candidates, carefully considering the choices, and casting their votes. The involvement of members in this leadership selection process is crucial to the long-term success of the organization.

Complete Election Results

The number of votes each candidate received is shown in the list below, along with the percentage of all the votes cast (in parenthesis) and the percentage of members voting who selected that candidate (in square brackets).

Peter Quella (labrat_wr) 96 (17%) [84%]

James Bliefnick (JimandLinda) 86 (15%) [75%]

Brian Kling (Team Black-Cat) 85 (15%) [75%]

Rob England (Averith) 75 (14%) [66%]

Lisa Daniels (Curly Girls) 64 (12%) [56%]

Brian McKay (uws22) 54 (10%) [47%]

Kevin Grant (Scrappy Scout) 52 (10%) [46%]

Will Church (lone_gunman) 31 (5%) [27%]

John Nagler (guidetoo) 12 (2%) [11%]

Wow, thanks so much guys! To all those that voted for me, thank you. Also thank you to everyone that ran this year, if you didn't make it on the board this year definitely try again. This year was my 3rd time running, so please stay involved.

Thanks again,

Averith
