Nomination Forms for Individual 2014 WESA Awards and WESA 2015 Commission Open Positions will be distributed to all teams at the end of June, 2014.
Only WESA 2014 Members are eligible to nominate other WESA 2014 Members.
Deadline for all nomination forms to be returned to the WESA Secretary is end of play on Sunday, July 20, 2014.
INDIVIDUAL 2014 WESA AWARDS
Categories for Individual 2014 WESA Awards for each division include:
Season Most Valuable Player
Best Defensive Player
Best Offensive Player
Rookie of the Year
Sportsperson of the Year - C Division: Rick Berg Memorial Trophy
Sportsperson of the Year - D Division: Ethel Award
All qualified nominees will advance to the online voting final round which will take place after the WESA Cup Playoffs weekend (July 19 & 20, 2014).
WESA 2014 Members will receive an email with a link to the online voting system and will have one week in which to vote for their choice amongst the top qualified nominees in each category.
All votes are anonymous and will not be shared or publicized.
Winners will be announced at the WESA Annual Awards Celebration Banquet on Saturday, September 6, 2014.
WESA 2014 Members who receive nominations in any category from the most people on other teams outside of their own team will advance to the online voting final round where WESA 2014 Members will be invited by email to vote for their choice in each category.
The number of qualified nominees who will advance to the online voting final round will be based on the most total number of nominations from multiple teams for any one person in any one category.
WESA 2014 Members may be nominated in multiple categories within their division.
Nominations from another division will not count.
This methodology prevents having a huge slate of nominees for any one category, and focuses potential voting to a narrower margin of the top qualified nominees in any one category.
WESA 2015 COMMISSION
WESA Bylaws (located under the tab “League”.) “5. Eligibility to hold office or serve as a Commissioner, except where otherwise specified in these bylaws, shall be limited to Voting Members of the League who are in good standing.” (i.e. Any current WESA Member.)
WESA 2015 Commission open positions (and their terms of service) include:
League Commissioner (2015-2016)
Membership Commissioner (2015-2016)
Special Events (2015)
Member-at-Large C Division (2015)
Member-at-Large D Division (2015)
Technology (2015-2016) (Appointed)
Position/portfolio descriptions are located in the league’s Appendices under the tab “League”.
Please ask the WESA 2014 Member first before you nominate them for a Commission open position. This helps save everyone’s time if the current Commission receives nominations for those people who accept the nomination.
Accepted nominees will be elected or attain the position by acclamation at the WESA Annual Awards Celebration Banquet (September 6, 2014).
