Section 2.     The President, Vice President, most recent available Past-President and Directors shall constitute the Board of Directors of the Chapter, hereinafter referred to as the “Board”. Section 3.    

At least 90 days before each Annual Meeting, the Committee on Nominations shall report to the Secretary-Treasurer the candidates nominated for offices to become vacant at the next Annual Meeting and ten candidates for membership on the Committee on Nominations that is to serve in the following year. In the selection of candidates for Directors, the Committee on Nominations shall have due regard for diversity of professional and geographical representation. The report of the Committee on Nominations shall be prepared so that if the candidates the Committee nominates are elected there will not be more than one person employed by any single organization serving simultaneously as an elected Director or more than one person employed by any single organization serving simultaneously as Vice President, President, or Past President member of the Board. Each candidate for the office of President, Vice President or Director must have given his consent to his nomination before the report is published.


The Secretary-Treasurer shall cause notice of all such nominations to be transmitted to the membership of the Chapter as least 60 days prior to the next ensuing Annual Meeting. By petition to the Board signed by at least 10 members of the Chapter, within 15 days thereafter, additional nominations for officers or for membership on the Committee on Nominations may be made. The complete list of nominations shall be submitted at least 30 days before each Annual Meeting to the Chapter membership for ballot to be canvassed at the Annual Meeting and the result announced.


The candidate for any office receiving the most votes shall be declared elected, and the six candidates receiving the most votes for membership on the Committee on Nominations shall be declared elected. With these six, the most recent available past-president of the Chapter will serve, making a total membership of seven. The past-president member shall be chairman of the Committee on Nominations. Should any member of the Committee on Nominations thus chosen fail, within 15 days of formal notice from the Secretary-Treasurer, to make written acceptance of service, a vacancy shall occur, to be filled by the candidate receiving the next greatest number of votes, and so no until the six elected places on the Committee shall be filled.
