Executive Board members will nominate an individual to fill the remaining Vice Presidential term subject to approval of the general membership at the next general membership meeting;

  • If the Vice President does not agree to fill the remaining Presidential term, the Elections Committee will convene in order to select a nominee for the approval, first, of the Executive Board and, then, of the general membership.
