• NEW  – STATE REPRESENTATIVES
The board is seeking a volunteer from each represented state of the WSLA. This person would be the liaison between state members and the WSLA BOD. Are there educational events that you would like to see in your are? Do you have fairgrounds or other locations that are interested in having Lowlines at their venue? Are there youth that would enjoy showing Lowlines but don’t know how to get started? How can WSLA help support your state?

The volunteer person would stay in contact with the Vice President through email and/or phone conversations. Your states’ needs and wants would then be brought to the monthly board meeting. If you’re interested in becoming a State Representative, contact Julie Davis at 425-308-4456 or clearvalleyfarm@hotmail.com.
