The Board of Directors consists of eleven positions. There are four officer positions with specific duties and responsibilities for the operation and business of the club. There are six director positions. Directors are usually responsible for important functions of the club operation such as committees and appointed positions. Committee chairs are usually held by a Director though it not always required to be a Board Member to be a Committee Chair. Committee Chairs and appointees are important positions and are encouraged to attend the Board of Director meetings.
The eleventh position on the Board of Directors is the Past President. This is position obtained by ascension of the person in the office of president for the current year at the conclusion of the voting for the officers for the next year.
At the November meeting the secretary will report the results and identify the members that have been nominated for the 2012 election. There will also be an opportunity to nominate candidates for office or director from the floor during the business portion of the meeting.
Nominated persons will be contacted to confirm their acceptance of the nomination. The nominee can decline or accept the nomination at that time. There is no conditional candidacy in this process. The nomination acceptance period is one week or until the secretary has confirmed all nominations. At that time the ballot will be published with the candidates for each position. Online voting will be activated on the Member Only website and the Absentee Ballot system will be activated.
