Executive Officers & Elections

There are four elected positions: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary. Any full member is eligible for an elected office position. Terms are two calendar years.

Elections will alternate years so that the President and Vice President are elected in one year and the Secretary and Treasurer are elected in the following year. This means there could potentially be an election every year (two positions one year and two positions the next year). In the case of uncontested elections (no nominations are received), there will be no voting, and the incumbent will serve another two-year term.

The affairs and business of the Association shall be governed by four (4) Executive Officers (also known as directors) who will serve two-year terms and will be nominated and elected by the full members using the current election method.

At the time of nomination, election, and during his/her term in office, each officer must be a full member of the Association in good standing. Any member in good standing can nominate as many full members as he/she wishes for each scheduled vacancy. Members receiving two or more nominations will have their names placed on a ballot unless they so decline. Incumbent Executive Officers will automatically be placed on the election ballot unless they so decline. In the case of uncontested elections, there will be no voting.
