How Do WBO Interest Groups Work

  1.  How do I select a group?
    Members select their desired Interest Group based on personality and experience by going to your profile and selecting a group under WBO Involvement. If a selection is not made, the board can select a group for them. *The board member may select the final group for the member base on group levels during the approval process of application.

  2. How many people are in a group?
    Each group comprises of 25% of membership (20-30 members). Your desired group may be full, and you can join another group until the next year. 

  3. When do groups meet?
    The group leaders may set their own schedule, but most groups meet quarterly on the 1st week of February, May, August and November.

  4. What if I don't want to be part of a group?
    You may change your group selection in your profile, or select to opt-out of all groups. 

  5. What do Interest Groups do?
    Each group participates in different facets of the association for the good of the association, and to encourage members to get to know one another. You will never be forced to do anything you do not want to do. Simple share with your group leader what you are comfortable with participating in.
