SFWPC Endorsement Process

Full details of how our endorsements process works is explained here.

Interested in serving on our endorsements committee? Come to one of our events and sign up at the sign in table, or email info@sfwpc.org and indicate why you’re interested. (Must be or become a member to be considered.)

Vote Eligibility

To be eligible to vote at the endorsement event, members must:

  1. Be current on their dues as of the endorsement vote event.

  2. Have attended and signed in at three endorsement eligibility events in the preceding twelve months prior to the general membership endorsement meeting. Eligible events include meetings of SFWPC programs, events, Board and committee meetings, fundraisers, and other activities as the Board deems suitable. Attendance at the Endorsement Committee meeting where members are seeking an endorsement does NOT count as an eligible event. Members must sign in to be counted and will be responsible for ensuring their names are on the sign in sheet.

Endorsement eligibility events will be listed at sfwpc.org. The vote event does not count towards the three-event requirement.
