WFencing is a nonprofit organization committed to uphold the mission of the Olympic dream as it extends to the American professional sport fencing community. We work to achieve diversity, unity and equity among all fencing professionals no matter race, gender, or geographic location in the United States.
WFencing will hold its Annual Meeting of the Membership on Sunday, July 2, 2023 at 6:00 PM Mountain Standard Time in room 127A in the Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, AZ.
This is an in-person meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to elect WFencing Board of Directors members and to provide an annual update to the membership.
WFencing members eligible to vote have received information about the voting process. Those voting members who are unable to attend in person are encouraged to designate a proxy person who may stand in their stead at the meeting. Proxies will count toward quorum requirements, and proxy-holders must be present at the meeting to cast votes. All voting will be conducted in person only.
As a member-driven organization, electing strong leadership is an essential member responsibility. WFencing’s Board of Directors represents a diverse group of coaches, fencing professionals, parents, and athletes who believe increasing diversity among fencing professionals to unify Team USA, reduce SafeSport complaints, and increase participation in collegiate and club fencing nationwide are mission critical. Working together with the entire membership, the Board is dedicated to representing the interests of all members and leading WFencing as one voice for the betterment of the USA Fencing community.
