Board of Directors

The elected members of the board of directors include:  the Vice President, three Regional Directors (East, West and Central) and two Directors-at-large.  Directors are nominated from within the membership of the Society. In November, a call for nominations for upcoming vacancies on the Board of Directors is posted on the website and sent electronically to members. Nominations for the board positions must be received ninety days in advance of the Annual General Meeting. In the event that more than one nomination is received, a ballot shall be conducted. Nominations must be presented to the members at the Annual General Meeting for final approval. The Vice President progresses automatically to President who in turn progresses to Past President. The Secretary-Treasurer is appointed from within the Board of Directors.

With the exception of Vice President, President and Past President, Directors may serve two consecutive terms of office.
