Board of Trustees
Officers and Trustees
Trustees are elected by the full membership to serve three-year terms. Trustees have voting privileges at all meetings. The Board of Trustees elects Officers to serve two-year terms.
The Board President may appoint up to five Associate Trustees to serve one year terms. They may participate fully in business before the Board but do not have voting privileges at Board meetings.
Past Chairmen of the Board automatically become Trustees-at-Large and maintain their standing provided they attend at least one Board meeting per calendar year. They also carry voting privileges at Board meetings.
The designation of Honorary Trustee may be given by a vote of the membership to a distributor member who has previously served as a Trustee. They may participate fully in all business before the Board but have no voting privileges at Board meetings.
Per Article III of the Association Bylaws: "No distributor member of the Association shall have more than two representatives on the Board of Trustees. If a distributor member of the Association has two representatives serving on the Board, the member shall be entitled to one vote, which may be exercised by either representative of the company."
