Bylaws Revison 6.2011

In order for a more efficiently functioning organization, the Board of Directors, at the annual meeting in Las Vegas, has passed a motion to separate the Secretary/Treasurer position to elected positions of Secretary and Treasurer. Also to reflect a change to a four-year term, respectively. This requires a change in the by-laws and needs approval by the membership.

The following is the current language of the by-laws:

Board of Directors
Section 1. Composition. The Board of Directors shall consist of eight (8) members; the President, Past President, President Elect, Secretary/Treasurer and four (4) Directors-at-Large shall act as officers.

Section 2. Qualifications. Terms of Office, Nominations, Ballots, Elections, Start of Term, and Vacancies.
A. Qualifications and Term of Office. The President, Past-President, President Elect, Secretary/Treasurer and Directors at Large shall be fellow members of the Veterans Caucus. The President and President Elect shall have one-year terms of office. The Directors at Large shall consist of two (2) senior members and two (2) junior members elected for alternate two-year terms of office. The Secretary/Treasurer will have a two-year term of office. Any fellow member may be elected to serve as President-Elect only after completion of one term as an elected member of the Board of Directors.

The changes would be reflected as follows:
Board of Directors:
Section1. Composition. The Board of Directors shall consist nine (9) members; the President, Past-President, President-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, and four (4) Directors-at-Large shall act as officers

Section 2. Qualifications. Terms of Office, Nominations, Ballots, Elections, Start of Term, and Vacancies.

Any fellow member may be elected to serve as President-Elect only after completion of one term as an elected member of the Board of Directors. All other positions may be elected from the general fellow membership in good standing. Start of term would be aligned with the policy of the AAPA.

If approved, the appropriate changes to the description and responsibilities of these positions will be made accordingly, after review and approval by the Board of Directors.
