CWMEA Presidential Election
Hello fellow CWMEA member!
The election for the next CWMEA President is now underway. As a member of CWMEA, you are encouraged to participate in the selection of your next representative on the WMEA Executive Board. There are two applicants who are running for the position: Pearl Petaia and Cecilia Lewis. All are strong members of the organization and have vision for the future of CWMEA.
In order to best inform you, the voter, the candidates have each provided a cover letter and résumé detailing their involvement with CWMEA and their level of qualification/experience. Beyond on-paper qualifications, each candidate has submitted a brief video of themselves answering the following prompts:
What qualifies you for this position? (Communication, organization, vision...)
What do you see as an important challenge or change to CWMEA that you would, if elected, take on?
These resources are provided below to enable you to be as informed as possible when you vote. Below each video you will see the candidate's name. Below their name you will see an icon that, when clicked, will allow you to see that candidate's cover letter and résumé.
Please watch the entirety of both videos and read each candidate's cover letter and résumé thoroughly before voting. Use the following link, or click on the "Vote Now!" button on this page to access the Google Form used for voting. To assure a fair vote, you may only vote once and you must provide your name and NAfME ID (Obtainable from the WMEA office at (425) 712-9632).
All votes must be cast by 11:59 PM on Wednesday, February 14th, 2018.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at or (360) 609-9325. Thank you for your involvement and I look forward to seeing who you elect to be the next CWMEA Presdient!
