Article IV: Officers
Section 1. The Officers of the Society shall be: a President, who will serve as President-Elect from the time of the election until they assume the duties as President on January 1, immediately following their election, and who may be re-elected once; a Treasurer, a Secretary, and a Conference Chair, all of whom may serve unlimited, consecutive terms. All Officers will be elected to serve two-year terms. The President and Treasurer will be elected so that the first year of their term will begin in even years; the Secretary and Conference Chair will be elected so that the first year of their term will begin in odd years.
Section 2. The Officers shall be elected from among members in good standing, and all officers must maintain their memberships such that they remain members in good standing during their entire term. The term of office shall commence on January 1 following the annual meeting at which the Officers were elected.
Section 3. The Officers named in Section 1 shall discharge the duties usually assigned to their respective offices (see By-Laws).
Section 4. A vacancy in the Secretary, Treasurer, or Conference Chair positions occurring in the interval of the meetings of the Society, may be filled by appointment by the President until the next duly elected Officer begins their term of office.
Section 5. The Executive Committee shall consist of the President, President-Elect, immediate Past-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Conference Chair.
Section 6. Between the annual meetings the business of the Society shall be conducted by the Officers, acting within their individual responsibilities, and the Executive Committee.
Section 7. Performance Review, Replacement, and Impeachment of Officers. Unless otherwise required, on or about December 1 of the first year of the term, the most recent Past-President on the Board of Directors will query all current Board members to tabulate a “Vote of Confidence” for each member of the Executive Committee. The Officers will continue for the second year of their term unless 2/3 of the Board, not including the Officer being considered, vote to impeach any Officer.
In the event of an impeachment of the President, the most recent Past-President on the Board of Directors will assume the remainder of the term until a replacement is elected. In the event of the impeachment of an Officer, a replacement will be appointed by the President, unless the President is also impeached, in which case an appointment will be made by consensus of the Board of Directors.
