Annual Organizational Meeting

At the first regular meeting at which newly elected board members are seated in election years and at the first regular meeting in December in non-election years, the board shall elect from among its members a president and a vice president to serve one-year terms. Officers shall not be elected following the appointment of a director to fill a vacancy on the board unless a majority of the board is appointed. If a board member is unable to continue to serve as an officer, a replacement shall be elected immediately. In the absence of both the president and the vice president, the board shall elect a president pro tempore who shall perform the functions of the president during the latter's absence. The superintendent shall act as board secretary. In order to provide a record of the proceedings of each meeting of the board, the superintendent shall appoint a recording secretary of the board.

In even-numbered years in June a legislative representative shall be elected who shall serve a two-year term.

The normal order of business shall be modified for the annual organizational meeting by considering the following matters after the approval of the minutes of the previous meeting:

  1. Welcome and introduction of newly elected board members by the president.
  2. Call for nominations for president to serve during the ensuing year.
  3. Election of a president (roll call vote).
  4. Assumption of office by the new president.
  5. Call for nominations for vice president to serve during the ensuing year.
  6. Election of a vice president (roll call vote).

Policies shall continue from year to year and board to board until and unless the board changes them.
