The Western History Association membership elects the primary governing body of the organization, which consists of the President, President-Elect, Executive Director, and seven regularly elected members to serve on the Council. Together, and with the assistance of the Nominating Committee and other committees, these elected officials oversee the broad interests of the association by managing business and creating policies that promote a congenial home for all those interested in the study of the North American West.
To learn more about the rules governing the WHA and its affairs, read the organization's Constitution and ByLaws. More information about the WHA's various standing committees can be found here.
