Answer

Section 1.    Officers and Qualifications.  The officers of the Club will consist of a President, Vice-President of Membership, Vice President of Programming, Vice President of Operations, and Treasurer, and these officers shall be on the Board of Directors. Other or additional officers may be established by the Board from time to time.  Other officers must be Regular Members of the Club. Two or more officer positions may be held by the same persons, but this shall not change the minimum nor maximum number of allowed members of the Board of Directors, as stated in Article III, Section 1. 

Section 2.     Duties of Officers.  
Each officer shall perform such duties and exercise such authority as may be determined by the Board.  The officers shall have the power to run the day-to-day affairs of the Club.

Section 3.    Term and Compensation. Officers, as directors, shall be elected bi-annually by a majority of the Board, and shall hold office for a term of two (2) years or until their successors have been elected and qualified, or until removal as provided herein.  Officer positions shall be limited to three (3) successive two-year terms. The outgoing President will be expected to remain active after the election as described in Article IV, Section 6.  No officer shall be paid for services to the Club as an officer.

Section 4.    Eligibility.  Eligibility for an Officer position in the Club requires that an individual (i) be a Regular Member in good standing and (ii) a member of the Board of Directors of the Club.

Section 5.    Vacancies. If the office of any officer becomes vacant for any reason, the Board shall have the power to appoint, by majority vote of the Board, any qualified person to fill such vacancy, who shall hold office for the unexpired term of the predecessor officer or until a successor is elected and qualified.

Section 6.    Succession Policy.  All Officers-Elect shall be elected, as described in Article IV, Section 3, at least one (1) month before the expiration of the final term of the current Officers.  In order to ensure a smooth continuous functioning of the Club, it is expected that the outgoing President shall assume the role of President-Emeritus and will serve a six (6) month term as such, remaining active in the Club to serve in an advisory capacity for the incoming President.  The foregoing succession policy applies, except when explicitly waived by a two-thirds vote of the Directors.
