“Section 1. Nominations and Elections Committee. Annually, on or before the first Friday in March, the President, with the advice and consent of the Board of Governors, shall appoint a Nominations and Elections Committee ("Nomination Committee"). The Nomination Committee shall consist of the Immediate Past-President, who shall be the Chair; the President-Elect; and
three seven additional voting members in good standing who are not currently serving on the Board of Governors. In the event the Immediate Past-President or President-Elect is unable or declines to serve on the Committee, a substitute shall be appointed.
In addition to the nomination provided in Article IV, Section 2.3, the Committee may nominate one or more persons for the office of Secretary/Treasurer each year consistent with Article IV, Section 1.
