The WPI Board of Directors is an appointed group of Voting WPI Members. There is no term limit on Board members, and Board members can only be removed or replaced by the Board itself.
While some LARP Organizations have Boards which are elected by their membership, our experience shows that a self-selected Board leads to a more stable, more accountable club.
