V. ORGANIZATION A. Officers. The society will have a President, a Secretary-Treasurer and an Editor for the electronic newsletter. The last two offices, with permission of the President, may be held be the same individual. Terms of office are for two years, with one-term renewal possible. Officers will be elected by a majority vote of the members in good standing through elections announced in the society newsletter (emailed). All nominations (or self-nominations) should be made directly to the President. B. The program chair will be determined by the floor nomination and vote at the annual meeting. The initial program chair will be the President or an individual designated by the President in the first instance. The program chair in any year will complete her/his duties after the call for papers for the next year’s session is promulgated. C. If a majority of members so desire, an Executive Board, may be created, with rules to be determined by a majority vote of the membership. D. COMMITTEES. At the discretion of the officers of an Executive Board, if such a body is constituted, ad hoc committees, with officers, may be established. The officers, with the consent of a majority of the members, will clearly define the duties of all such ad hoc committees. The ad hoc committees will inform the members of the society of their actions either through the newsletter or by a presentation at the annual meeting.
VI. MEETINGS. There will be annual meetings of the society to be held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the College Art Association. Additional meetings may be held in conjunction with regional meetings, with the approval of a majority of the membership.
VII. AMENDMENTS AND DISSOLUTION. Motions to adopt a new constitution for the society, or to amend the existing constitution, or to dissolve the society will be made in writing over the signature of at least 15 members of the society, or twenty percent of the active membership, whichever is smallest. Such motions will then be submitted to the President, who shall submit them to the membership acceptance or rejection based on a majority vote. Amendments to the society’s constitution shall follow the same procedure, except that any 6 members under signature may petition for a change.
