The vice president shall serve in the absence of the president and shall perform such other duties as may be assigned by the president or by the Board. 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. A member may be elected to successive one-year terms as vice president.
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.
