202.03 – Vice-President

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.

The vice-president of the Board is elected by a majority vote at the organizational meeting in odd-numbered years, or at the annual meeting in even-numbered years, to serve a one-year term of office.

The vice-president will accept control of the meeting from the president when the president wishes to make or second a motion. The vice-president will take an active role in Board decisions by discussing and voting on matters before the Board in the same manner as other Board members.
