Leadership Succession
One of the most rewarding ways a member can be involved with the chapter is by becoming an officer or member of the Board of Directors.  Having a direct impact on guiding the chapter and interacting with members is a fantastic experience.  Through the chapter's leadership succession plan, officers are elected based on the schedule below.  Newly elected officers then train with a current member of the board and are ready to go when their term begins on July 1 of their election year.  Terms are generally two years in length.  Members of the Board and many officers meet once a month by teleconference and once per year at the face to face annual Board of Directors meeting.  


The election ballot is completed using the odd/even year schedule listed here:  
Even Years President-Elect, Treasurer, Counselor, Leadership Succession Committee (3)
Odd Years Secretary, Vice-President, Governance Committee (1)
