WASPA structures

WASPA’s constitution provides for a Board, which provides strategic leadership and oversees the performance of WASPA. In addition, the WASPA Constitution provides for the establishment of other committees as necessary for WASPA to fulfil its mandate.

The WASPA Board

The members of the Board are elected by WASPA’s members at the association’s annual general meeting. The Board consists of seven people, including a Chairperson, a Vice Chairperson and a Treasurer. Board Members are required to provide strategic leadership and oversee the performance of WASPA in accordance with the organisation’s Purpose and Mission. Each Board member takes responsibility for a particular portfolio within WASPA. The office bearers and associated portfolios are listed here.

Code of Conduct Committee

The Code of Conduct Committee is open to all WASPA members, although the WASPA Board is entitled to limit the participants in the committee if necessary to ensure that it functions smoothly. This committee is responsible for development and implementation of the WASPA’s code of conduct; and documentation of the processes used by WASPA to handle code of conduct complaints.

Lobbying Committee

The Lobbying Committee is open to all WASPA members, although the WASPA Board is entitled to limit the participants in the committee if necessary to ensure that it functions smoothly. This committee is responsible for establishing common industry positions on key issues and liaising with mobile networks and regulatory bodies.
