Elections & Term Lengths

Elections are held annually at the annual meeting of the section (typically in June):

  • The President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, and Immediate Past President serve one-year terms.
  • The Secretary-Treasurer shall be elected for a three-year term and may be re-elected to an unlimited number of consecutive terms.
  • The Editor shall be elected for a three-year term that coincides with the editing of three complete volumes of the Section newsletter. The Editor may be reelected for additional terms without limit.
  • The Councilors shall be elected for not more than a three-year renewable term of office (excepting the first election of Councilors). To establish a set of Councilors with staggered terms of office, the first group will draw lots to determine who will serve 1, 2 or 3 year terms so that no more than approximately 1/3 of the body will be up for election in any one year. ln the event that a Councilor position is vacated for any reason. the President shall appoint a member in good standing to serve the remaining term of office for that position.

If you are interested in serving as an office or councilor, contact section President Craig Nichol.
