2.1 Nomination and Election of Officers


Officer positions are elected annually by the Board in accordance with ABO bylaws. Officers may be elected for consecutive terms, but may not serve more than two consecutive full terms. A full term is defined as one year. Directors are prohibited from holding more than one officer position simultaneously. Under special circumstances, an officer’s position may be extended by one (1) year by super-majority vote of the Board.


  1. No later than 60 days before the annual board meeting, Directors may make nominations for officer positions. The Executive Director informs the Board of Directors of these nominations.
  2. Officer positions include Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and such other positions the Board establishes. A nominated Director must formally accept the nomination through a letter of intent, expressing a willingness to serve and complete the duties of the designated office as outlined in the ABO bylaws.
