The text of Meeting Rule No. 2 (adopted in December 2001) is shown below.
RECOMMENDATION: The Board should nominate and elect officers for calendar year 2004. It has been the Board’s past practice to elect the General Manager to serve as Secretary and the Administrative Services Manager to serve as Treasurer.
At the first meeting in the month of December of each year, the Board of Directors shall elect a Chair, Vice-Chair, a Treasurer, and a Secretary. The agenda for the December meeting will list the election of Board officers as the last item for consideration that evening. The officers elected in December will assume their positions after the December Board meeting. Rotation of the chair shall be encouraged. At the first meeting after a vacancy occurs in any office, an election shall be conducted to fill that vacancy. If both the Chair and Vice-Chair are absent, the directors in attendance shall select a presiding officer to conduct that meeting
