Note: According to the bylaws, 9.6, Staggered Terms for Certain Directors, the terms for the officers of the Board of Directors will be staggered as follows: (a) The Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, and Secretary will be elected at the annual meeting occurring on "odd" years; and (b) the Executive Vice Chairperson and Treasurer will be elected on "even" years. Somehow the division has gotten off this schedule, to which we want to return. As a result, the June 2014 Elections are for Executive Vice Chair, and Treasurer (and the June 2015 Elections will be for Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary.)

According to the Bylaws, the Executive Vice Chairperson performs the duties of the Chairperson in the absence of the Chairperson, and duties assigned by the Chairperson, the Board of Directors, or the Executive Governance Committee.

The job description of the Treasurer is to have general charge of and be responsible for all funds and securities of the Division; receive and give receipts for monies due and payable to the Division from any source and deposit the monies in the name of the Division in banks, trust companies, or other depositories selected by the Board of Directors or an authorized officer; perform all duties commonly incident to the office of treasurer and other duties prescribed by the Board of Directors or an authorized officer; and pay all bills approved by the Board of Directors, and preserve all vouchers for disbursements. The Treasurer shall, at the Annual meeting of the Division, submit a report of the financial condition of the Division and any material financial transactions involving the Division during the preceding twelve months.
