Board Vice President
The Vice President of the Board shall be a member of the Board of Directors and shall be elected by a majority vote of the Board at its organizational in odd-numbered years, or at the annual meeting in even-numbered years, to serve a one-year term of office. Board members elected to offices of the Board will take the Oath of Office.
By this election, if the Board President is unable or unwilling to carry out the duties required, it is the responsibility of the Vice President of the Board to carry out the duties of the President. If the President is unable or unwilling to complete the term of office, the Vice President will serve as President for the balance of the President’s term of office, and a new Vice President will be elected.
In addition, the duties of the Board President may be delegated by the Board to the Vice President if the President is temporarily unable or unwilling to carry out the duties required. When the Vice President is not available, the position shall be assumed by the member with the longest continuous seniority on the Board. However, if the Vice President of the Board is unable or unwilling to fulfill or complete the term of office, the Board of Directors shall re-elect a new Vice President when the current Vice President steps down or resigns.
The Vice President will take an active role in Board decisions by discussing and voting on each motion before the Board in the same manner as other Board members. The Vice President shall be entitled to vote on all matters that come before the Board. The Vice President may accept control of the meeting from the Board President when the President wishes to make or second a motion.
